This notice serves to inform all Executive Directors, Program Directors, and active users of the Child Development Management Information System (CDMIS) of the new “Reason for Receiving Child Care” option within the CDD-801A Monthly Child Care Population Report (CDD-801A).

The Governor issued Executive Order (EO) N-45-20 on April 4, 2020, and EO N-47-20 on April 7, 2020, to ensure that at-risk populations, essential critical infrastructure workers, and families with children with disabilities or special health care needs can obtain Emergency Childcare during the COVID-19 State of Emergency. The CDE is encouraging all programs that can safely remain open, or reopen, to do so in order to serve current families, at-risk populations, children with disabilities or special health care needs, and essential worker families that need childcare to perform their essential work. In addition to serving current families, contractors with CCTR, CSPP, CFCC, and CAPP contracts may enroll new families by following the directives set forth in Management Bulletin 20-06 located at

To align with the new eligibility criteria, the CDMIS has integrated an additional reason code within the “Reason for Receiving Child Care” field drop-down menu and is as follows:

  • T-Emergency Childcare
  • Listed in the Reason for Receiving Child Care drop-down menu as “T”
  • Available to be used for the report months of April/May/June 2020 or until the State of Emergency has ended, whichever occurs first

Any questions or concerns pertaining to this matter may be directed to CDMIS Support email at
