The Childcare Subsidy Block Grant program is a program funded by grants issued by the State of New York. Eligible families are those who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or those who are at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines and are currently working. This program is designed to help parents maintain employment without enduring the total cost of daycare. The benefits of this program are not only to help the parents with keeping their jobs but also to enhance the child’s development.
Parents may choose either registered or informal daycare providers who meet quality childcare standards as set by the County and State. Quality assessments, assistance, and daycare provider referrals are provided by Child & Family Resources. Improving and ensuring the safety of program enrolled children is the leading priority. Please call to have eligibility determined.
