Child Care Assistance Program
The Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) can help families pay child care costs for children through age 12 and children with special needs through age 14. Child care costs may be paid for income eligible families while they go to work, look for work, or attend school. All families will have a co-payment based on their gross income and family size.
