Child Care Subsidy

Child care subsidy is available through the federal Child Care and Development Block Grant. It helps parents pay for licensed child care while they are at work, in training or getting an education. It also helps prevent neglect or abuse that can occur when children are left alone or with unqualified caregivers.

Subsidized child care benefits ensure high-quality care for children while their parents or guardians are at work, in training, or receiving an education. Subsidized child care benefits may also be provided as part of a protective service plan to prevent abuse, neglect or exploitation. The subsidy is paid directly to the child care provider on the family's behalf. The family may have a copayment for the child care based on their income; and the number of family members and the number of family members needing services.
