This program provides funding to enhance the quality, affordability, and supply of child care available to Virginia's families. Child care programs are child-centered, family-focused services that support the family goals of economic self-sufficiency and child development by providing substitute parental care, protection, guidance, and early childhood education.
Assistance with the cost of child care may be available to families who:
Have a Head Start child and who are working or in school
Receive Temporary Assistance to Needy Families and work or are in school
Who work or are in school and meet certain income guidelines
