Do I Quality?

Is Child Care Subsidy an Option for My Family?

To qualify for the child care subsidy program, a family needs to meet both the situational and financial criteria.

Situational Criteria

You may be eligible to receive child care assistance if one or more of the following situations apply to your family:

  • You are working or are attempting to find work

  • You are in school or in a job training program

  • Your child is receiving child protective services

  • Your child needs care to support child welfare services or if your family is experiencing a crisis

  • Your child had developmental needs.

Financial Criteria

Most families, including those receiving Work First Family Assistance, are required to pay a percentage of their child care costs based upon their gross monthly income.  The parent fee percentages are 10%, 9%, and 8% and are based on family size.

Using the table below, you can determine whether you may meet the financial criteria to receive child care subsidy.  If you meet the financial criteria, you can estimate your child care subsidy cost.

How Does Child Care Financial Assistance in North Carolina Work?
 

North Carolina's Division of Child Development uses a combination of state and federal funds to provide subsidized child care services to eligible families through a locally administered state-supervised voucher system. Annually each county receives a combination of state and federal funding from the Division of Child Development for subsidized child care services. The amount of funding allocated to each county is determined by legislation.

If the county department of social services or other local purchasing agency does not have enough funding to serve all families who apply for subsidized child care, the agency may establish priorities for services. For example, an agency may choose to give priority to working parent(s) or families who need child care to support child protective services.

If a family meets the eligibility criteria, the state of North Carolina pays a portion of the cost of child care. Parents are free to choose a child care arrangement that best fits their needs as long as the provider chosen participates in the Subsidized Child Care Program.

The amount the state pays for child care depends on:

  • The family's situational criteria
  • The family's income
  • The cost of the child care provided
