Fiscal Agent Services
Fiscal Agent Services is an extension of the Child Care Subsidy Program, which works with the Provider Services department to reimburse child care providers for services provided to eligible children. Payment is made to providers in accordance with the DWSS Child Care Program Manual, typically within 30 business days from when LVUL ECC receives the provider’s request for reimbursement.
