ODJFS offers financial assistance to eligible parents or legal guardians to pay for child care while they engage in work or approved school or training activities. To be eligible for publicly funded child care, a family’s income must not exceed the current limit for the program and only approved caregivers must be utilized. Families can be eligible to get assistance for all or part of their monthly child care expenses. County departments of job and family services determine eligibility for this program. For more information, or to apply, inquire at your county department of job and family services. For your county location and phone number, please search here.
