Child Care Subsidy Assistance


About Child Care Subsidy Programs

Child Care Associates manages $38m in state funding for Tarrant County (CCMS) and West Central Texas (CCS) to help low-income families cover the cost of quality child care for approximately 12,000+ children annually.  Subsidized child care services are designed for parents who are working or attending school who oftentimes struggle to cover the high cost of quality child care programs in their community.
