Child Care Services is a program that provides low-income families with funding to enhance the quality, affordability, and availability of child care.

Child Care Services assist low-income parents who are working and/or are attending school and whose children have child care needs. Child Care Services are also provided to families who are receiving TANF and are working towards economic self-sufficiency. With welfare reform's increased emphasis on employment, many single parent households become low-income working families. These services are designed to help parents locate affordable quality care to support their efforts toward greater self-sufficiency.
