There are several child care assistance programs to help low and moderate income families pursue employment or education leading to economic self-sufficiency by subsidizing their child care. All programs are supervised by DHS, unless noted. For Child Care Program policy, see the Child Care Assistance Program Policy Manual.
NON-MFIP POST-SECONDARY PROGRAM
The Post-secondary Child Care Grant Program is administered by the Minnesota Higher Education Services Office to help students who do not receive MFIP with their child care costs so they may attend public college and universities, technical and community colleges, private colleges and some vocational schools. Additional information on this program may be available through the financial aid office at the school.
