Wednesday, November 17, 2010 • Posted November 17, 2010

Child Care Services (CCS) is a state program that provides subsidized daycare for parents that are working, attending training or enrolled in educational programs and that meet income criteria. CCS splits the cost of daycare with parents based on income and family size. Part-week care and full week care are eligible for CCS assistance.

Eligibility Requirements:

o Single-parent household where the parent is working a minimum of 25 hours per week and a two-parent household where the parents are working a minimum of 50 hours per week (hours are split between parents).

o Children under the age of 13.

o Income Guidelines were adjusted in October 2010 and many more families will qualify for assistance!
