The new child care assistance provision, the Child Care Employee Income Exclusion, starts today, making all child care employees working at a certified or licensed provider eligible for the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) regardless of income level. Families applying for CCAP that meet all technical eligibility requirements and have verified employment in a regulated licensed or certified child care program will be eligible to have ALL household income excluded for the CCAP application process.
The CCAP application process will remain the same. However, all household income for those families working in a licensed or certified child care program will be excluded, thus making CCAP eligibility available to those employed in child care who may have been previously denied due to income barriers.
