**Reminder to Child Care Providers: It is the responsibility of the provider to submit the completed attendance voucher to H.R.N. no later than 5:00 p.m. on the 5th day of the month, after the care was provided. Vouchers received after the 5th of the month will not be processed or paid until the next month. If the 5th of the month falls on a weekend or a holiday, vouchers will be accepted the next working day. Vouchers that are received more than one month late may not be paid.
The Human Response Network takes seriously its contract with child care providers, and will make every attempt to make timely payments for services rendered. However, from time to time, because of situations such as a State Budget impasse, payments to providers may be delayed. Providers will be notified as far in advance as possible if a payment will be late.
