Funding Resources for Childcare

  • Virginia’s Child Care Subsidy Program

    Virginia’s Child Care Subsidy Program offers assistance for families in paying child care costs for children under age 13 who are not eligible to attend public school during the part of the day when public education is available, or children with special needs under age 18 who reside with the applicant.

  • Virginia Department of Social Services

    Virginia Department of Social Services Financial assistance is provided to eligible families to help with the cost of childcare so they can work or attend education programs. Contact your local department of social services or visit CommonHelp.

  • United Way

    The goal of the United Way Early Learner program is to close the opportunity gap by promoting strategies to provide all children with the most appropriate and effective early services, supports and high-quality early child care and education required to achieve the desired outcomes.

    Early Learner Scholarships are for child care and preschool for children from low-income working families. These scholarships give children access to quality, stable early education environments to prepare them for success in school and life.
