Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend (WFSCB) provides financial assistance for child care to families within its 12-county region which includes Aransas, Bee, Brooks, Duval, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Live Oak, McMullen, Nueces, Refugio, and San Patricio counties. This financial assistance makes it possible for parents to maintain jobs or attend school or participate in training activities which enable them to enhance their quality of life and the lives of their children.
Through the Child Care Financial Assistance Program, parents can receive support to help pay for their children to attend a State licensed child care center, licensed child care home, or a listed relative child care provider. Our program provides services for children ages 0 thru 12 (up to age 19 for children with special needs).
Studies consistently show that children who receive quality care at an early age perform better overall. Moreover, parents who know their children are well-cared for are more focused and productive on the job.
To qualify, you should meet the following requirements:
• Single-parent families must be working/training at least 25 hours per week
• Two-parent families must be working/training at least 50 hours per week
