Child Care & Development - General Information

Child Care Subsidy Program

The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services is the designated lead agency to administer the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF).

The CCDF Child Care Program assists low-income families, families receiving temporary public assistance and those transitioning from public assistance in obtaining child care so they can work.  CCDF funds are also used for Quality activities to improve the quality of child care by financially assisting child care providers in their professional development and maintaining healthy, safe, appropriate learning environments for children 0 to 12 years of age.  Other services under Quality include Resource and Referral for parents seeking child care and consumer information on the aspects of quality child care.  Resource and Referral services are available to all Nevada families at no cost.
