Child Care Financial Assistance

Child Care and Development Fund

The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) is the designated lead agency to administer the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). DWSS partners with The Children’s Cabinet in northern Nevada and the Las Vegas Urban League in southern Nevada to provide eligibility case management and support to child care providers.

The CCDF Child Care and Development Program assists income-eligible families in obtaining child care so they can work, receive job training, or finish a higher education/vocational training program.

  • Important Updates to The Child Care Subsidy Program

    Effective April 1, 2024, The Child Care and Development Program has implemented a wait list for all new applicants applying for child care subsidy. In addition to the wait list, families are now responsible for a family co-payment contribution. See attached documents for additional information, including applicants who are exempt from these requirements.

    Head Start Eligibility for Families Receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Support

    In April 2022, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) released a joint announcement about a change in Head Start policy which makes it easier for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) households to become eligible for Head Start programs. ACF expanded its interpretation of “public assistance,” as used in the Head Start statute, to include SNAP. Now SNAP households can demonstrate their eligibility for Head Start by simply showing proof of SNAP receipt or eligibility, such as a copy of a notice of approval, other documentation of eligibility or benefits from the SNAP agency, or an Electronic Benefit Transfer card with SNAP identification number to become categorically eligible for Head Start services.
