Financial Assistance

Supplemental Child Care Program

The Childcare Resources' Supplemental Child Care Program (SCCP) assists eligible parents with paying for the cost of child care. Based on a sliding scale related to family size and income, parents pay a portion of the cost of care and Childcare Resources pays a portion.
 

Families must live in our central Alabama service area of Blount, Jefferson, Shelby and Walker Counties, meet income and work requirements. Parents must need child care for children birth to five years old (until eligible to start kindergarten).
 

Parents can choose from any legally operating child care provider willing to accept payment from Childcare Resources. Providers must register with Childcare Resources before they can begin receiving payment from Childcare Resources.

Effective June 1, 2019, we are only accepting applications for residents of Walker County.

Application Process

All applications are processed within 30 days of receipt.  A family will receive a letter notifying them regarding the status of their application.  The letter will indicate one of the following: 

 

  • Family is eligible and placed on waiting list

  • More information is being requested to determine if family is eligible

  • Family is not eligible for assistance

Waiting List

Families are placed on the waiting list in the order their application was received, and as funding is available will be pulled accordingly to submit additional information.  A letter will be mailed requesting eligibility documentation. Families that meet eligibility guidelines will be invited to an interview to complete enrollment in the program.

Families currently enrolled in the SCCP are required to report any changes to their employment status, income, family size, etc. within ten (10) days from the first day the change occurs. Some changes may require additional paperwork, which will be provided to the family upon receipt of their SCCP Parent Change Form.
