Child Care Works

The Child Care Works program is designed to enable low-income families to maintain employment while ensuring children receive high quality child care.  The Child Care Works (CCW) program is a non-entitlement benefit made available through Federal and State funds.  Eligible families are assessed a family co-payment based on their income and family size.

While many circumstances can affect eligibility, a sample of assessed co-pays is listed below.
