Federal Employees:

To help make child care more affordable for lower income federal employees, federal agencies are allowed to assist employees with their child care costs.

The Child Care Subsidy Program applies to employees whose children are between the ages of birth and 13, or disabled and under age 18, and are enrolled, or will be enrolled, in family child care homes or center-based child care. The child care must be licensed and/or regulated by state and/or local authorities.

Find out if your income qualifies you for assistance.
