More Families Now Eligible for Free or

Low-Cost Child Care

The little things you do for your child in their early years make a big difference. For many families finding quality, affordable childcare is a key part to giving your child their best start. More families now qualify for free or low-cost childcare for children up to age 12 through the Child Development and Care (CDC) program. The CDC program pays childcare providers an hourly rate for care, but it may not cover the full cost. You may be expected to pay the remaining amount that the subsidy does not cover. If you have questions about whether you qualify or how to apply, www.visit or contact your local MDHHS office.


Are you looking for a high-quality, learning-rich pre-school program for your children or grandchildren? Children come to the center four days per week. They offer full-day sessions in Early Head Start and Head Start. In some locations they offer half-day Head Start sessions. Limited transportation is provided when possible for Head Start locations. These services are available to families at no cost. For more information and to check eligibility: 1-800-792-0366 or
