At this time Child Care Services has open enrollment.
Important Information for Parents:
Effective November 1, 2020, the Texas Workforce Commission will reinstate the requirement to provide no less than three months of child care following a permanent job loss. Customers who have already received three or more months of child care following permanent job loss will be provided four additional weeks of child care to allow them to meet work or education requirements (25 hours per week) so that they can meet eligibility for a new 12-month eligibility period. Therefore, at a minimum, all customers will continue to receive child care through Friday, November 27, 2020, or until the end of their current eligibility period, whichever date is later.
Important Things to Remember:
- Work requirement is reinstated effective November 1, 2020. Unemployed customers will no longer be allowed more than three months of subsidized child care benefits.
- November 27, 2020 is the last day for unemployed customers to receive subsidized child care benefits. Additional extensions will not be granted.
If you have questions or are interested in being referred to our Workforce Center staff for job search resources, please call us at 800-234-9306 to speak with a Child Care Representative.
Are You Eligible for Child Care Services?
The child care services program subsidizes child care for low-income families, promoting long-term self-sufficiency by enabling parents to work or attend workforce training or education activities. It also educates parents about the availability of quality child care, which enhances children's early learning.
Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas Child Care Services (CCS) maintains agreements with a wide range of child care providers in order to meet the needs of families receiving services. In order to receive assistance, families must meet federal, state, and local guidelines.
