Child Care - Subsidized
Subsidized child care can be provided to children who need child care for one or more of the following reasons:
- To maintain employment
- Education (time limited)
- Crisis situations
- Developmental needs of a child
- Child Protective Services
Each family’s eligibility is determined based on the above criteria and their income. Parents must pay a portion of the child care costs every month directly to the provider by paying 8%, 9% or 10% of their countable income as a parent fee. Please come in during business hours to apply.
Parent should choose a provider based upon the needs of the child from a licensed center or home, church operated programs and informal arrangements such as care by a relative. Federal regulations require in most instances that providers must meet some health and safety standards and agree to certain conditions for the receipt of public funds.
- Know and understand the facility policies and procedures before placing your child in any child care center or home.
