Township Opens Application Process for Child Care Assistance Grants



New Trier Township has opened the application process for the Day Care Financial Assistance Program and the Before/After School Care Financial Assistance program. These Township funded programs provide assistance with payment for qualified child care for income eligible working parents and/or legal guardians of children from birth through 12 years of age. 
"These child care financial assistance programs foster the healthy development, safety and well-being of children and the self sufficiency of our residents," noted New Trier Township Supervisor Patricia B. Cantor. The goal of the Child Care Financial Assistance Program is to enable working families to obtain quality, affordable child care while they are at work, school, or job training.
Financial assistance amounts vary and are based on the family’s personal situation, income, and cost of care provided. All applicants are expected to pay a portion of the fees and the child care program must be state licensed.
Applications and Guidelines for the programs are available online and at the Township Office located at 739 Elm Street in Winnetka.   Residents may also call 847-446-8202 to have one mailed.  Applications for the Day Care program will be accepted through July 16, 2012 and the Before/After School program through July 30, 2012. Following the deadline, applications will be reviewed and given consideration based on available funding.
