  • What kind of child care can I use and receive help in paying for my child's care?
    You can use a Licensed Child Care Center, State-Registered Family Child Care (FCC) home provider or a Family, Friend & Neighbor (FNN). The selection is always parental choice.
  • What is the process if I select a Family, Friend & Neighbor (FNN) provider?
    You should inform the Subsidy Case Worker assigned to your case that you would like to use a FFN provider. You must also be prepared to have the potential provider’s full legal name, address of where he/she will be watching your child, provider’s phone number and social security number available when you call. This potential provider will then receive a phone call and will be mailed a packet that must be completed and returned immediately. New requirements must be met by your potential provider before payment can be approved. IMPORTANT: Due to new state mandated requirements the timeframe to complete all the requirements can take approximately five through eight weeks. We will not back pay, parents / applicants will have to pay out of pocket until the prospective provider has completed all the requirements and has been approved.
  • How often should a provider expect to be paid?
    Once the contract is received, the provider can expect to receive payment on a bi-weekly basis which will be direct deposited into their bank account.
  • I submitted an application for the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP); how long will it take to process my application?
    We review documentation provided by you within 10 business days. However please be advised a response will be sent to you via mail and allow an additional 3 to 5 business days for mailing.

    Only those clients on the Work First New Jersey Program (WFNJ) are eligible for assistance with transportation. Up to $2 per day can be paid.
  • How much assistance will I receive and what is my portion (co-pay)?
    The amount covered is dependent on your family size, income and whether you need full-time or part-time care. The exact amounts will not be known until all of the listed information has been approved and entered in the state subsidy systems.
  • Do you help pay occasional care if my current provider is closed due to school closing?
