Child care assistance helps with the cost of child care. Parents must be working, looking for work or in a training program. There are 11 District Offices in NH that help families apply for child care assistance. Gross family income is used to determine eligibility. Gross family income must not exceed 250% of the federal poverty guidelines. Parents may apply for child care assistance through the Division of Family Assistance.
It is important for you to know that children may be placed on a wait list for child care assistance.
