Child Care Facilitated Enrollment Project
Members in your local union may be eligible for subsidized child care for working families! The New York Union Child Care Coalition (a committee of the New York City Central Labor Council) has developed a pilot project for working parents to increase access to child care subsidies and quality care in New York City for children up to 13 years of age within qualifying incomes (e.g. under $90,000 for a family of four). Child Care Subsidies are now available across New York City. These vouchers can be used for any type of child care provider and can save parents an average of $15,000 per year (per child) in child care expenses. The pilot project is being administered by The Consortium for Worker Education (CWE) in coordination with the NYC Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) .
Parents must be working, live in New York City, and meet income restrictions.
