Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas administers funding through Child Care Services (CCS) to help parents pay for child care while they search for employment, work, go to school, or participate in job training in order to become self-sufficient. Those eligible for child care assistance may include:
Parents with low incomes who need help paying for child care so they can continue to work or attend training
Parents who are receiving public assistance (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) formerly Food Stamps, Social Security survivor benefits for their child, etc.)
Parents who have recently stopped receiving TANF benefits because of earned income
Parents in job training programs through the Workforce Center
Teen parents from low-income families who need child care to attend school
Parents with low incomes who have children with disabilities
With CCS, parents choose who will care for their children. Options include licensed child care centers, licensed child care homes, registered child care homes, or relatives. CCS assists parents in identifying their needs and determining the child care option that is right for them.
