The experimentally measured rates of the semileptonic decays K → πl and D → K(π)l can be combined with lattice calculations of the associated form factors to precisely extract the CKM matrix elements |Vus| and |Vcs(d)|. We report on the status of form factor calculations with Fermilab charm quarks and staggered light quarks on the 2+1 flavor asqtad staggered MILC ensembles. Analysis of data for the D → πl form factor provides a nontrivial test of our methods via comparison with CLEO data. We discuss the use of HISQ valence quarks to calculate the K → πl form factor f+ Kπ(0) and describe tests of our method.
