Workforce Solutions Coastal Bend Area Child Care provides financial assistance for child care to over 3,450 families in the 12 counties of Coastal Bend area - Aransas, Bee, Brooks, Duval, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Live Oak, McMullen, Nueces, Refugio, San Patricio every day. Financial aid helps many parents keep their jobs as they work to improve their lives and the lives of their children. Financial Aid is limited and not everyone who qualifies for financial aid will be able to get it right away. Frequently, we have to place families on a wait list. We encourage you to place your name on the wait list and at the same time seek other resources for affordable child care.

 

Workforce Solutions Coastal Bend Area Child Care can help you find other options for affordable care in your area. Please call any of our career office locations. Families can access financial assistance by telephone, by mail, on-site at local career offices, and now via on-line services.

In order for us to assist you, you will need to provide the following information:
. Social security number and birth certificates for all household members
. Employment information for all household members including name, address, and phone number of the employer, work hours/days, rate of pay, how often paid
. Training information for all household members including name, address, and phone number of the school, days per week, current enrollment hours, total number of hours completed, and anticipated graduation date.
. Amount of household income received from other sources such as TANF, Child Support, SSI, etc. (Child Care financial assistance requires proof that you have applied for child support through the Attorney General's Office)
. Child care information including name, address, phone number, city, and zip code of a licensed registered child care provider.
. For relative child care providers, the name, address, phone number, social security number/EIN, and their relationship to the child(ren). Please note Relative child care providers must be LISTED with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services-Child Care Licensing.
If your family meets eligibility requirements, and if Workforce Solutions Coastal Bend Area Child Care has funds available, we may pay a portion of your family's child care costs. You will be responsible for a co-payment based on the family's income. The parent(s) in each family must be employed, in school, or in vocational or technical training. If your family meets all requirements for assistance, but funding is not available due to limited funds, your family will be put on a wait list for assistance. If you are placed on the wait list, it is extremely important that you keep Workforce Solutions Coastal Bend Area Child Care informed of any changes in address, phone number, or family circumstances.
Several links have been included to assist you in searching for childcare and information on quality childcare.
