Annual CCCHG Membership - $65 per family
Background Check Error/Reprocessing Fee: The member is in complete control of all data sent for the background check. This information is sent directly to our processor company and we do not have access to it to check it before it's submitted. Please enter your data carefully, if there is an error and you have to submit a new background check, you will be responsible for the cost of the additional screening ($7.50).
Volunteer Opt-Out Fee - $25.00 (See membership requirements, this can be avoided by signing up and completing annual volunteer requirement). *NOTE: If you do sign up to volunteer instead of paying the $25 opt-out fee, and then don't follow through on fulfilling your volunteer requirement, you will be assessed a $50 non-performance fee.
