Find a child care provider that accepts CCDF vouchers.

(You may contact your local CCRR for questions about qualified providers. Ask about "Contract Centers" in your area. These are centers that have funds available to help families but you must attend those particular centers to receive that assistance. The income guidelines for these centers are the same as the ones for CCDF. You may also dial 2-1-1 for assistance.)

Find the CCDF office in your area.*
