What to Expect
After you receive your application packet you will need to complete the forms included with it. The application for Child Care is a shortened application and should be fairly easy to complete. You may also need to provide ID; birth certificates; Social Security cards; divorce, separation, or custody papers; and verification of all income.

Once we get your returned application packet we will review it for completeness. If we need more information we will send you a letter telling you what we still need. After all the necessary paperwork is received we will make an eligibility decision within 30 days from your application date.

 

Parent Fees
All individuals pay a portion of the child care expense to the child care provider. This payment is called the Parent Fee or Family Share, and will vary according to the family's income.

Resource Limit
There are no resource limits for child care.
