A major component of higher pay that Child Care Providers United members won in their contract is supplemental pay, to add to the per-child rates they get for caring for subsidized children.

After thousands of phone calls to the Governor’s office, signed petitions, and meetings with the State, 99.10% of all CCPU members who participated in the ratification process voted YES to collectively approve the Supplemental Pay they won in their contract!

Funding that providers need to keep their doors open will be on the way soon. 


  • The supplemental funds will come in the form of a lump sum this year, and monthly next fiscal year. The lump sum will be based on license type.

Please visit the Foundation for California Community Colleges webpage for information on eligibility.

Who is the Foundation for California Community Colleges and why they you receiving the payment from them?

  • The Foundation for California Community Colleges is the official nonprofit auxiliary partner to the California Community Colleges. The organization’s work benefits colleges, students, and communities, and aims to promote more equitable outcomes for all Californians. The state is contracting with the Foundation to distribute the supplemental payments that CCPU won.

We’re not done yet! CCPU will continue to have a powerful voice to improve the livelihoods and the services family child care providers provide. They will continue to build power through their union to win on critical issues needed to stabilize our child care system such as health care, retirement, and permanent funding ensuring all families can access affordable quality child care.
