Financial Assistance

Michigan’s Child Development and Care (CDC) program provides supplemental child care payments allowing low-income parents to work. The subsidy can be used for regulated child care in a licensed center, group child care home, family child care home or unlicensed care in the home of a relative or by an adult in the child’s home.
