Child Care Subsidy

Child care subsidies can help parents/caretakers pay for some or all of the cost of child care services.  In general, families are eligible for financial assistance if they meet the state’s low-income guidelines and need child care to work, look for work, or attend employment training.

If you are interested in finding out if you are eligible for a child care subsidy, or if you would like to apply for a subsidy for your child, please contact Lewis County Department of Social Services at (315) 376.5400.
