DD Form 2652 "Application for Department of Defense Child Care Fees"

What Is DD Form 2652?

DD Form 2652, Application for Department of Defense Child Care Fees, is a document used by Child Development Services (CDS) patrons to determine the appropriate childcare fees according to the total income of the family. A DD Form 2652 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be obtained through the CDS.

The form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 2652 - was last released by the Department of Defense (DoD) on October 1, 2020, with all previous editions obsolete.

The CDS will ensure that all of the assistance required for completing the form is available to all parents. The information provided in the DD 2652 should be full and correct - a periodic audit from outside of the CDS may review the submitted data. Failure to provide necessary information may lead to having to pay the highest fee range.
