Child Care Assistance

Parents often find the costs of child care overwhelming. But many families may find that they are eligible for subsidized child care through the Champaign County Department of Job & Family Services.

CCDJFS helps qualified families access and afford child care through publicly funded child care assistance.  Caregivers must be participating in one or more of the following approved activities:

  • Paid employment on a full-time or part-time basis.
  • A training or education activity that prepares the caretaker for paid employment.
  • Requirements set forth as a result of participation in Ohio works first (OWF) or the supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP) incuding:
  • Have income at or below 130% of the poverty level

For more information, contact the Champaign County Department of Job & Family Services at (937) 484-1500 and ask to speak with a child care worker.
