LA CARES Vouchers – Financial Aid Still Available!

Essential workers and low-income households may be eligible for vouchers to subsidize the cost of care at Kennedy Family Child Care through a special program offered by the County. The program ends December 31 and is managed by Connections for Children.

You can begin your application below. For essential workers you are eligible so long as you must report to work outside of your home, and there is no one to care for your kid, and your household assets are under $1 million dollars. The process is self-certifying, and subject to audit.
