A program that helps Soldiers with off-post child care expenses will begin transitioning from the Government Services Administration (GSA) to a contractor, Feb. 22. The Army Fee Assistance program helps Soldiers with the cost of off-post child care when on-post care is unavailable. The transition to the contractor, Child Care Aware of America, or CCAoA, will take place over about eight months. GSA will continue to manage Army Family accounts until the transfer to the contractor is complete in October. The transition will consist of seven geographically defined phases and all families residing within a geographic area will be transitioned to the contractor as a group. With the formal transition, CCAoA will begin management of any families new to the AFA program regardless of their location.
