Seattle Childcare Assistance Program

  • The CCAP subsidy helps subsidize the cost of child care.
  • Families’ subsidies are calculated using family size, family income, the hours of care needed for a child, and age of the child.​
  • A family applying to CCAP receives one voucher for each individual child in care. The CCAP voucher authorizes monthly childcare payments to an approved childcare program.​​
  • The voucher can be used for full-time, part-time, or before/after school care.​
  • Vouchers are authorized for 24 months; vouchers for student parents will be authorized for three months at a time, pending course schedules.
