Resources to Help During Your Child Care Search
Here are some resources to help you determine what child care may be best for your family, including information about assistance for low-income families and licensing.
Child Care Services (CCS)
The Child Care Assistance Program helps low income families who are working or attending training or education programs. When applying, you will need to provide information on all aspects of your household income, the family members in your household, and all work or training activities for each adult living in your home.
Child Care Services are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, but they do maintain a waiting list.
