Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance

Child care financial assistance is available to families with income at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level. Local funding may be available for families with income above 150% FPL. Families can apply for child care financial assistance by submitting a School Readiness application on the Family Portal website https://familyservices.floridaearlylearning.com/Account/Login. Please refer to the School Readiness application for current eligibility requirements. Eligibility is based on a family’s purpose for needing child care and on a sliding fee scale that factors in household income and number of persons in the household.
