Seeking Child Care Subsidy
Connections for Children administers several financial assistance programs that assist families with child care subsidy. Child care assistance is available to assist low-income families with partial or full payment towards child care while parents work, attend school or training programs. Funding for child care subsidy comes from a variety of Federal, State, and local funding programs.
All subsidized programs for child care allow parents to choose the arrangement that best suits the individual needs of the family. Parents are free to choose licensed or legally exempt child care assistance.
Our Program Specialists are available to help understand child care subsidy by working with each family to certify eligibility and make contractual arrangements with the child care provider. Families may also contact our Resource & Referral Department for more information about licensed child care assistance programs and help with choosing appropriate care. Eligible families are served without regard to gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or disability.

Child Care Referral Policy
Connections For Children believes that parents are best able to evaluate and select the right child care for their children. We do not recommend any specific provider; we only provide the parent with a list of providers randomly selected from our computerized referral database. Parents are urged to visit any child care facility they may be considering and make their decision carefully.
