Child Care Eligibility Changes

Very important changes are coming to the publicly-funded child care program. The state of Ohio has instituted new income eligibility guidelines. Essentially, new applicants must be at 125 percent of the federal poverty level for a family of their size or below. Existing applicants can be at 200 percent of the federal poverty level or below. If those applicants were to miss a review and need to reapply, they would be subject to the lower limit. Learn more at the following link:
