What is Child Care Assistance?
The Child Care Subsidy Program, Wisconsin Shares, assists low-income families to pay for childcare services.
Am I eligible for Child Care Assistance?
Childcare assistance is available to low income families who need it for employment, for teen parents in school or working on obtaining a GED, and for families who are in a training program working to improve their employment status. Families must have income below 185% of poverty to be initially eligible, and can continue to be eligible until income exceeds 200% of poverty. Most parents are required to share the cost of childcare through a co-payment required.
