New Online Background Check System

It is finally here! The new system for Background Checks is up and running. Providers can now sign up for their own portal access in the Information Network of Arkansas (INA) to complete their background checks. Provider use of this system will be mandatory starting October 1, 2020.

Using the New Online System (account needed)

DCCECE will pay a one-time reimbursement to child care providers for the $150 INA subscription cost. If you would like to be reimbursed for this cost, please email a copy of your INA invoice to INAReceipts@dhs.arkansas.gov showing your payment of $150.  Please allow 4 weeks to process your reimbursement request.
