Child Care, Statewide

Eligible for services if you are a family with low income, a member of a DHS protective services case participating in a treatment plan, a FIP/EFIP of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipient, or a FIP applicant doing a required work participation program activity

 You must have a child care need because of work, high school completion classes, approved education or training, or approved treatment activities for a health or social condition.

 The child care must be provided in Michigan by a licensed child care center, licensed group child care home, registered family child care home, or DHS enrolled unlicensed child care provider who has completed the Great Start to Quality Orientation and provides child care in the child’s home or provides care in his/her own home and is related by blood, marriage or adoption as a grandparent, great-grandparent, aunt/great-aunt, uncle/great-uncle, or sibling and must not live in the same home as the child.

   FIP/EFIP, SSI recipients, and children’s protective services families are eligible without an income determination.

  DHS child care rates are based on the type of provider you chose, the child’s age, and the provider’s training if the provider is an unlicensed child care provider.  If you are eligible because you are a low-income family, DHS pays 70-100% of child care costs.  The percentage depends on your gross monthly income and eligibility.  You are responsible for any child care costs not paid by DHS.
