Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP)
Did you know? The Child Care Assistance Program, commonly referred to as the Subsidy Program, can help parents/caretakers pay for some or all of the cost of child care services. In general, families are eligible for financial assistance with child care if they meet the state’s low-income guidelines and need child care to work, look for work, attend employment training, attend an education program, and/or meet income requirements. For more information, please visit: https://ocfs.ny.gov/programs/childcare/ccap/help.php
