The childcare services program subsidizes childcare for low-income families, promoting long-term self-sufficiency by enabling parents to work or attend workforce training or educational activities. It also educates parents about the availability of quality childcare. Serves the following counties: Collin, Denton, Ellis, Erath, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell and Wise. Families may be eligible for assistance with childcare costs if the parent(s) work or attend an education or vocation training program for a minimum average of 25 hours per week for a single-parent home and 50 hours per week for a two-parent home. Income guidelines do apply for eligibility and are listed on the website.
