Child Care Services

Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF)

CCDF is a federal program that assists low-income families in obtaining child care so that they can work or attend school.

Find out if you qualify.


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.*
