Child Care Subsidy

You may be eligible for Child Care Subsidy from the Federal government. Use The Benefit Bank tool to find out if you can get some help for you and your family and whether you are eligible for other public benefits.

States receive funding through the federal Child Care and Development Block Grant. That funding stream provides resources for states to meet the needs of families receiving welfare, those that are in training or the workforce, others making the transition from welfare to work, and low-income families who meet eligibility requirements.

Subsidies may be paid to providers or to families with required access to multiple settings such as child care centers, prekindergarten programs, family child care homes, and care by relatives and friends. 

Child care subsidy programs provide a key work support. Research also shows good quality early education experiences can have a profound impact on the lives of children.
