Child Care Assistance Program

Minnesota’s Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) helps make child care affordable for income-eligible families.  Families will have a copayment based on their gross income and family size, and most families on Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) child care have a copayment of $0. Child Care Assistance is available to:

  • Families participating in MFIP or Diversionary Work Program (DWP)
  • Families that had an MFIP or DWP case close within the last 12 months
  • Low-income families that may be eligible for the Basic Sliding Fee program

The Child Care Assistance Program pays child care costs for children age 12, and younger and for children with special needs to age 14. Child care costs may be paid for qualifying families while they go to work, look for work or attend school. To qualify for CCAP, families must comply with child support enforcement if applicable for all children in the family. Care must be provided by a legal child care provider over the age of 18.
