Helping working families with the high cost of child care

Child Care Subsidy Program

Many families in New York State struggle with the high cost of quality child care even when they are working full-time or nearly full-time. WDI’s Child Care Subsidy Facilitated Enrollment Program helps eligible working families apply for financial assistance. WDI staff are available to answer questions and guide families through the application process.

In addition, WDI can provide information to aid families in choosing quality, developmentally appropriate care for their children.
