Day Care Subsidies
Day care subsidies are issued to low income families and temporary assistance recipients to enable them to afford child care and continue employment.
Referrals for New York State licensed, registered, or informal child care providers comes from the Child Care Aware of Steuben and Schuyler (previously known as Steuben Child Care Project). Once you obtain a provider and are eligible for the subsidy, you will receive assistance in paying for child care. Eligibility is dependent on income. You may also be eligible for the subsidy if you have a relative or informal provider caring for your children.
