The federally funded Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP) provides financial assistance to eligible families who are working, searching for employment, in training or in an educational activity and need childcare services to support their efforts to achieve and/or maintain self-sufficiency.
CCCAP is administered in Weld County through the Department of Human Services (DHS). Families enrolled in CCCAP are required to pay a portion of their childcare costs, called the parental fee. The amount you pay is based on your gross income and the number of people in your household.

In order for a childcare provider to accept and receive CCCAP payments, they must be contracted with DHS. To become contracted with DHS, the family receiving CCCAP must request an enrollment packet from their case manager. The family and childcare provider complete the packet together and submit the completed packet back to the case manager. Call (970) 400-6017 or email HS-CCCAP@weldgov.com for more information.
