Do you or someone you know need help paying for child care? 


Child Care Resource Center can help.  We all know child care is expensive but did you know CCRC can help with the cost?  Many families don’t know that they qualify for help paying for child care.  Financial assistance is available for child care all hours of the day, including nights, weekends, or for just a few hours a week.
Whether you are looking for employment, going to school, or working and in need of care, CCRC can help!  And, you can choose your child care type such as licensed center, family child care home, a family, friend or neighbor to take care of your child. Need help finding a provider? We can help with that too. The application is quick and easy. Most people complete it in 3-5 minutes.
Visit or call 1-866-67-KIDS.
