Child Care Assistance

Financial Assistance

High-quality child care that is available and affordable is important to children's healthy development and families' self-sufficiency and peace-of-mind. The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) helps income-eligible families pay for child care, and helps child care and other early learning programs improve the quality of care they offer.
