The eligibility for subsidy is based on the parents'/guardians' participation in at least one of the following:

  • Educational and training programs that lead to employment in a demand occupation. The list of demand occupations is generated by the state   Department of Labor.
  • Working parents
  • Teenage parents who were completing their high school education.
  • Families who needed help to prevent a child's out-of-home placement.
  • Working parents who are transitioning from Temporary Assistance
  • Day care for Foster Parents to ensure day care while working.
