Low-Income Child Care
Workforce Solutions Brazos Valley provides subsidized child care services to low income families in the 7-county region. To be eligible to apply for child care services, each parent or guardian residing with the child must be working, in an approved training program, or in school a minimum of 25 hours per week. Eligibility for at-risk child care assistance is based not only on approved activity hours, but also on your family s gross income and the number of people in your household. Eligible families are required to pay a parent share of cost that is based on their level of income, household size, and number of children in care. If you are participating in other Workforce Programs, like WIOA and Choices, you could also be eligible to receive a child care subsidy. To find out if you are eligible for these services, please contact Child Care Services at (979) 595-2801, extension 2105.
