Child Care Assistance Program Eligibility
The Child Care Assistance Program, also known as Alternative Payment Program or voucher based program, serves eligible families who need access to free or low-cost childcare services and provides support to parents and providers. This parental choice subsidy program helps families arrange child care services and make payment for those services directly to the child care provider.
Before services are approved, parents must provide documentation of the family’s eligibility and the need for child care services. After services are approved, parents choose an eligible child care provider that offers the appropriate services and meets the family’s needs.
