Child Care Network
 
 

The Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care

Helps eligible low-income families find and pay for child care
through child care subsidies. 
Eligibility of low-income status is based on State Median Income. 


The guidelines are available at mass.gov
 
     

All parents/guardians in the household must also meet certain activity requirements.  They must be working, looking for a job (for up to 8 weeks), or be enrolled in school for at least 20 hours per week.

If the parent/guardian or child has a diagnosed and documented special need, the family may qualify. If the parent/guardian is receiving cash assistance from the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) they may qualify for free or low-cost child care.  Contact your DTA case worker to see if you meet the criteria.

If eligible, the DTA case worker will issue a Child Care Referral.  The parent then selects a child care provider and makes an appointment to see a Family Support Specialist at the Child Care Resource and Referral Agency

The Family Support Specialist will write the voucher and notify the child care provider that the State will make full or partial tuition payment for the child.  In some cases, parents/guardians must pay a parent fee based on income or family size.

A voucher appointment can not be scheduled until the Child Care Referral has been received by the CCR&R and the child care provider has been selected by the parent/guardian.  

Non DTA families who are income eligible for child care assistance can apply for a voucher directly with the CCR&R.  They will be placed on a statewide centralized waitlist while awaiting funding.  Renewal letters are sent out annually to update the waitlist.  If a parent/guardian does not respond, they will be removed and lose their place on the waitlist.
