Child Care Subsidies

Human Services Banner

With funding from the City of Boulder and City of Longmont, the Child Care Subsidy and Referral (CCSR) Program, in partnership with the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP) provides assistance in paying for child care to low-income families.


The first step in obtaining assistance is applying with the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP), a statewide program. Visit for information on program administration within Boulder County.

Child Care Subsidy 

For those families who do not qualify for CCCAP, a second subsidy called Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is available. CCS has different income and eligibility requirements. CCS is only available to those who do not qualify for CCCAP and also live in the City of Boulder. CCS benefits are paid through the City of Boulder Family Services.
