Child Care Subsidies
This activity is designed to increase the number of families receiving subsidies, provide supplements to providers based upon the number of children they serve and their efforts to enhance the quality of care they provide.
This project will increase accessibility of child care for families who would otherwise be placed on a waiting list because of insufficient funds. It will also assist children with special needs through allocation of supplements for child care.
