  • 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.

    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.

  • How much assistance will I receive and what is my portion (co-pay)?
