Approved Definition: Approved Provider, who is approved by the State of Alaska, Child Care Program Office (CCPO) Child Care Assistance (CCA) Program as an Approved Relative Provider, or an Approved in-Home Provider.

Guidelines for Reimbursement

While you choose your professional development path, you must meet the following guidelines and deadlines to receive up to $1,500 in reimbursements. Use a portion — up to $500 — for trainings and conferences, and use the remainder (or the entire $1,500) for higher education.

PDR funds will be reduced by the amount of other scholarships and/or financial aid you have already received.
