Child Care Assistance and Provider Registration

We've expanded eligibility for child care assistance to help more families meet a basic need of securing safe, affordable child care while parents and guardians are at work, looking for employment or pursuing eligible educational and training programs.

The County is also working to make it easier for child care providers to become certified to receive reimbursement for services provided to eligible families and caregivers.
