CCR&R Monthly Newsletter September 2, 2021
Providers- Have you completed your 2021 Business Information Form (BIF)?

On July 6, 2021 the BIF was emailed to child care programs in our 8 county service delivery area. To date, over 50% of providers have already completed their BIF! This past year has shown us just how critical the child care sector is and how essential child care programs are to our communities.

Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) continues to work hard to collect data to support the child care industry. The data we collect from you is used frequently to bring awareness to the needs of the child care profession and to support the work you do!

A big THANK YOU to those providers who have completed their BIF! If you have not had a chance to complete your BIF watch for the BIF reminder email from CCR&R next week.

Contact Connie Frey at or 920-886-1211 if you have questions.
