Child Care Subsidy - These three programs assist income-eligible parents with child care costs.
Transitional Child Care is a support subsidy for those leaving Temporary Assistance due to new employment or increased income. The recipient receives a day care subsidy allowance per child in daycare (regardless of income) for a period of twelve months.
Child Care & Development Block Grant Program provides child care subsidies for the working poor whose income is up to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.
Title XX provides childcare for ill or incapacitated parents whose income is between 225% and 275% of the Federal poverty level.
These programs are reimbursed by the state and federal government to the county at 100% and make childcare subsidies available not only for employment-related reasons, but also for child protection purposes. These programs pay up to the fair market daycare rate for Sullivan County per child (for day care provided by a registered day care provider or informal daycare provider.)
