Screening for Eligibility and Applying

The Child Care Subsidy Program provides financial assistance to eligible families to help pay for the cost of child care so they can work or attend education or training programs. The Child Care Subsidy Program services are child-centered and family-focused and support the broader objective of strengthening families’ goals of economic self-sufficiency and quality early childhood programs for their children. Participating families may select any legally operating child day care facility eligible to participate in the program.

You can screen for eligibility and/or apply online. You may also print the paper application in English or Spanish and return it to your local department of social services. If you are unable to print the application, you may pick up an application or request that one be mailed to you from your local department of social services

Note: You may need to be interviewed by a child care worker. Income verification is required.
