Looking for Child Care?
Families that are looking for child care can call their local child care referral specialist. Trained referral specialists will help families explore the child care options in their community.
Paying for Child Care
The Child Care Financial Assistance Program helps families pay for child care. Families with a household of four people can make up to $77,256 per year and qualify for some help. Information about how to apply is available for families.
Families that receive Child Care Financial Assistance have options available to them to help pay for child care even if their child is not able to attend during the COVID-19 response period. The Child Development Division has sent this letter to families receiving the program with options available to them.
