Child Care Services assists low-income families who are in need of child care.
While child care subsidy assistance has been limited to work, job search and related activities, it has been expanded to include educational, vocational and training programs inclusive of a Bachelor’s Degree. It can also cover child care services for: income-eligible families participating in a treatment program; homeless families conducting housing search; teen parents attending high school; or families in need of protective care.

Please note: Child Care Subsidies are contingent on available funding.

Saratoga County continues to accept new applications but currently has a waiting list.
