Child Care Subsidy

The Child Care and Development Program helps families pay for the cost of child care. Households must meet the income requirements, and adults must have an approved “purpose of care,” or reason to need child care (see “Eligibility” below). The amount of financial assistance depends on household income and, if approved, payments are made directly to the approved child care provider. Approved child care providers include all providers licensed by the state or local child care licensing entity, as well as license-exempt providers, including family, friend and neighbor (FFN) providers who are approved to participate in the program.
