Is the cost of child care affecting your job, finding a job, or continuing education? We know having quality child care is one of your top concerns and it can be expensive. Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) can help! We provide financial assistance to eligible, low-income families who need child care benefits for children from birth to age 12.
Families living in Jefferson County, meeting the program income guidelines and cooperating with Child Support Services are eligible. We may be able to pay a portion of costs - directly to a qualified provider. Additional requirements apply and can be reviewed once you apply for assistance.
Who is eligible?

2.) Apply online using PEAK.
