Child Care Subsidy is a program funded through State, Federal and Smart Start funds to assist parents with the cost of child care. The subsidy program can assist parents with the cost of child care for children ages birth-12.
Child care services are based on eligibility, the need for child care and the availability of funds. In order to qualify for child care assistance, the parent/responsible adult must meet the programs income criteria based on the income unit. This program is available in the Clay County Health and Human Services office on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.
If Clay County Health and Human Services does not have enough funding to serve all families who apply for subsidized child care, the families can apply to be placed on a waiting list until funding becomes available. Families will be contacted via phone call or letter when funding becomes available.
