Child Development Permit Stipends

The Child Development Training Consortium (CDTC) Permit Stipend Program pays the permit application fee to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) for eligible applicants.

CDTC is no longer accepting child development permit stipend applications for the 2022-2023 program year. Please check back after July 1, 2023 for 2023-2024 applications. (Only new 2023-2024 application forms will be accepted)


Attention! Priority is given to all child development permit stipend applicants who have an account on the CDTC website to start and complete their child development permit applications.

At this time you may submit your application directly to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).


When applying directly to CTC, Please note that CDTC does not reimburse the permit applicant. You must pay the application fee and send all application documents to CTC. For fee information and further instructions on how to submit a paper application, refer to

CDTC accepts applications for all levels. Priority processing is given to online applications. Hard copy applications are also available, see below for links to application options.

Participation is optional. Funding for permit stipends is first come, first served.
