DCYF uses a central vendor file to process vendor payments.
If you are unsure if you have a SWV number, please visit: statewide vendor number search.
If you know your vendor number, email the SWV number, name and STARS and/or MERIT Provider ID to DCYF Statewide Vendor Registration in order to connect your SWV number to your MERIT account.
If you do not have a SWV number, you will need to complete a Provider form (see below). Once completed, print a hard copy and sign the form before sending it to DCYF. Please submit your form using one of the following methods:
Fax: (360) 902-8268
Mail: DCYF, PO Box 45812, Olympia, WA 98504
This form is to apply for a vendor number for MERIT, Early Achievers and/or SSPS.
If you have any questions about the form please contact us:
