Financial Assistance for Child Care

To apply for financial assistance or “vouchers” for child care, use the link below. Information is found beginning with the heading: “Am I Eligible for Child Care Assistance?.” Families must meet income requirements and the caretaker must be enrolled in school or be employed at least 30 hours a week to be eligible. Acceptance into the program is based on available funding. If funds are not available when your application is approved, you will be placed on a waiting list. Your application will be active for 12 months. If you still have need after 12 months, you will need to submit another application.
