CCC subsidy

What is subsidized
child care assistance?

Simply put, it is financial assistance to help pay for the cost of child care.  For many of Alabama’s families, subsidized child care is a lifeline to work, economic security, and happy, healthy children. 

Child care assistance provides low-income families with subsidies to offset the cost of child care, allowing them to go to work or school while providing young children with positive early learning experiences necessary for healthy development. When families qualify for child care assistance, parents benefit from having stable employment and the security of knowing their child is being cared for.
