LA CARES: Child care assistance for essential and low-income working parents
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the City of Los Angeles have dedicated part of their CARES Act funding to provide child care services (vouchers) for essential workers and low-income working parents during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Child Care Alliance of Los Angeles (CCALA) and its partner agencies will distribute these funds to eligible essential workers through Dec. 30, 2020.
Essential or low-income working parents who are in need of child care are encouraged to apply for emergency child care assistance. Please complete the automated application; completed applications will be forwarded to one of 11 agencies in our network of child care agencies based on the applicant's home zip code. The designated agency will review the application and notify the applicant if they have been approved. See flyer for more information.
