The subsidized child care program helps low-income families pay their child care fees. The state and federal governments fund this program, which is managed by the Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) office located in your county.
Early Learning Resource Centers (ELRC) provides families with information on quality child care and personalized child care referrals to child care providers based on your specific needs or preferences. ELRCs also administer the Child Care Workssubsidized child care program.
If you meet the guidelines for Child Care Works:
The ELRC will pay a part of your child care cost. This is called a subsidy payment.
You will pay a part of the cost. This is called the family co-pay.
The subsidy payment and the family co-pay go directly to the child care program.
NOTE: If your child care subsidy does not pay the full amount that your child care program charges, the provider may ask you to pay the difference between the subsidy payment and their private charges.
