Subsidized Child Care Programs - Parent Handbook

RCCC is a program of North Coast Opportunities (NCO), Inc. and administers a variety of Subsidized Child Care Programs that help eligible families pay for child care in Lake and Mendocino Counties. The purpose of this handbook is to explain the program rules that parents need to follow and the paperwork that must be completed for authorized child care services through NCO/RCCC Subsidized Child Care Programs.

Concerned with child care costs? Help is available.

If your circumstances do not allow you to cover the costs of child care in Lake or Mendocino County on your own, you may be eligible for funding. The Alternative Payment Program subsidizes child care payments for eligible families who are working, in school, or participating in a welfare-to-work activity. Financial assistance may cover all or part of your child care costs.

Eligibility is based on income level and family size, and immigration status is not part of the application. Funding is limited; applying does not automatically guarantee services. Please complete and return the subsidy application of the town closest to your home.
