Seattle Child Care Assistance Program Logo

Seattle Child Care 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.
WAITLIST NOTICE : Due to high demand for child care subsidies and limited available funding, a waitlist is in effect as of August 11, 2023 for families not already enrolled in the Child Care Assistance Program. Families on the waitlist will be contacted as more funding or space in the program becomes available. Families are encouraged to sign up for the waitlist while pursuing alternative options for child care assistance.
