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 child care 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).
Currently, Weld County's eligibility level is at 185% of the Federal Poverty Level. Families whose gross income does not exceed 185% of the Federal Poverty Level may be eligible for CCCAP. To find out if your family may qualify, you can download this PDF(PDF, 238KB) to review the gross income guidelines.
Families enrolled in CCCAP are required to pay a portion of their child care costs, called the parental fee. The amount you pay is based on your gross income and the number of people in your household.
To apply for CCCAP, parents must complete an application and provide information about their income and work or training program. Electronic applications can be submitted through the Colorado PEAK website or you may download an application here(PDF, 633KB) (cover sheet here(PDF, 324KB)). You can also pick up a paper application from DHS.
