We know that by empowering families, our entire community benefits. One of the programs we have to help empower families is our Child Care Subsidy and Financial Assistance program.

Financial assistance may be available on a temporary basis to parents who:

  • Work or are actively seeking employment
  • Attend school or an approved training program (must be attending full time)
  • Are experiencing a crisis
  • Has a child with documented developmental needs

For your family to qualify for financial assistance, you must:

  • Be a Cumberland County resident
  • Your child must be under five years old and not enrolled in Kindergarten
  • Meet income limits (income eligibility is based on 200% of Federal Poverty Level

If your family qualifies, you must Attend Tips on Choosing Quality Child Care, a free workshop provided by our staff.

Because financial assistance is based upon available funding, we have a waiting list. As funds become available, we contact families on the list.

To see if you qualify, please fill out the form below.
