Who handles the Child Care application?

Adult and Family Services (AFS) staff, Child welfare (CW) staff, or the OK SNAP Works Coordinator processes all Child Care applications. Use this page to determine if you will handle the application.

Is the parent or caretaker participating in OK SNAP Works?
When a person participating in OK SNAP Works asks you for Child Care, you must ensure the client completes an application and provides the contract number. Interview the client, record the client’s interview in case notes, and image all required forms and verification. Once you have completed these steps, email the coordinator at SNAPET@okdhs.org. The coordinator puts the authorization on the system.
