Child Care Assistance (CCAP)

Over 650,000 Minnesota children may be in child care each day.  Affordable child care is important to Minnesota families. It aids children's healthy development and gives parents peace of mind. Parents who have low incomes may get help paying for it through various programs.   Minnesota counties provide child care assistance services for almost 30,000 children in an average month. 

The Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP)  provides financial assistance to help families with low incomes pay for child care so that parents can go to school or work, and so that children are well cared for and prepared to enter kindergarten.   The CCAP program helps families pay for child care, so parents can work, look for a job or attend school. The program is available for children younger than 13 and for children with special needs who are younger than 15.
