Can You Afford Child Care?

In Alabama, raising a family with children is expensive. Whether or not a family can afford child care depends on income remaining after paying basic household expenses.

Thanks to a new child care affordability calculator created by Voices for Alabama's Children, users can select their county and based on median income for that county, see whether or not their family can access the licensed child care market after paying basic monthly expenses.

The calculator is a policy tool to better understand the challenges families have in accessing child care subsidy. For families who are interested in seeing whether they qualify for child care subsidy, please see the child care subsidy application (English and Spanish) and contact the Child Care Management Agency in your region.
