Did you Know?
Army Child Care Fee Assistance was created to provide authorized Reserve and Active Duty personnel assistance in locating, selecting, and offsetting the cost of civilian child care when on-base child care is not available or a viable option for the service member and their family. The program available through Child Care Aware® of America provides subsidies for eligible military dependents enrolled in quality commercial childcare programs throughout the United States.
Child Care Aware® of America authorizes subsidy amounts based on Total Family Income (TFI) for those eligible Army families and supplies monthly payments directly to the prospective childcare provider. The Army Fee Assistance Subsidy is the difference between what the Sponsor would pay for on-post childcare and the community-based childcare provider's rate, up to a provider rate cap of $1700 per child per month.
