New Child Care Assistance Income Guidelines Could Allow for 31,000 Additional Children to be Eligible for Assistance



The hard work of advocates paid off BIG time today for Kentucky’s young children and their families.  For the last 5 years we’ve encouraged our members of Kentucky’s Voice for Early Childhood to send messages, make phone calls and write letters regarding the income eligibility for the Child Care Assistance Program.  Your voices were heard! Thanks to the Governor and General Assembly, TODAY new income eligibility guidelines go into effect which could potentially allow for 31,000 additional children to be eligible for assistance.

The Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) makes it possible for low-income families to work and provides their children with access to safe, quality learning programs. Access to child care helps parents earn and children learn, a win/win for everyone in our state.

Our work is not done. Please help us spread the word so families are aware of the new income guidelines.  Families who may have applied in the past and were denied services because their income was too high, may now be eligible.  See the income limits below and share this important message. If you think you may be eligible for the program, call 800-809-7076.

Thanks again for making this dream a reality and continue to raise your voices for our youngest citizens!Child-Care-Income-Initial-Guidelines-9-1-16
