The Child Care Assistance Program subsidizes the cost of child care for low-income families (at or below 200% of the federal poverty level)** that are working and/or in school and have a need for child care. The subsidy amount varies depending upon the age of the child, the type of child care, the location of the program, and the rating of the child care program (as determined by the Look for the STARS Quality Rating System). Regional offices are located throughout the state and are staffed by Eligibility Interviewers who work with families to determine the amount of subsidy they qualify for.
The Child Care Assistance program has implemented a waiting list for all clients with an income between 100% and 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). The waiting list will remain in effect until further notice. If a client meets all eligibility requirements, but their income falls between 100% and 200% of the FPL, the client will be placed on a waiting list.
