North Carolina Families Accessing Services through Technology (NC FAST) is a program designed to improve the way the NC Department of Health and Human Services and county departments of social services do business.

In support of our effort to improve the integration of services that are provided at the local level, the Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE) continues work on the subsidized child care component of NC FAST. This project is designed to improve and streamline our application process, provide better case management capabilities across services, and ultimately incorporate a new process for collecting and assuring time and attendance within the subsidized child care program.

NC FAST will include a provider self-service component known as the Provider Portal. This portal will be used by providers to enroll in the Subsidized Child Care Assistance program, accept children into their care, update rates for services, and record attendance. The Provider Portal will be available online and require that the user maintain an NCID (North Carolina Identity Management) username and password.

Informational materials and instructional guides will be posted here beginning in January 2016. Please reference this location for Provider Bulletins, step-by-step instructional guides, and other need-to-know information as you plan for this transition.
