Brief Description of Services:  

Child Care Assistance is provided by the New York State Child Care Block Grant. Reimbursement may be available for the cost of child care while a parent or caretaker is working or attending school or college. Family income must be less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level to qualify. Child Care Providers must be Registered or Enrolled prior to reimbursement. Other regulations and requirements may apply. Eligibility determination can only be done after a completed application has been submitted.

 To discuss the qualifications or to have an application packet sent to you, please call the Day Care Unit at (315) 379-2285.
