Child Care Assistance

The Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP) is an income based, eligibility based program designed to provide child care subsidies to low-income families for the cost of child care. The eligible activities are:

  • Employment/Self Employment
  • 13 weeks of job search in a 12-month period
  • High school or GED study
  • 24 months of post- secondary education up to first bachelor’s degree
  • 12 months of job training for a certificate program

For two parent homes, both parents must be in an eligible activity. Mesa County does require compliance with Child Support for families applying for Child Care Assistance. Due to funding Mesa County currently has a Waiting List for the Child Care Assistance Program. An interview is required for new applicants to be added to the Waiting List. Families may apply at the Mesa County Workforce Center Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 8 am – 5 pm and Wednesday 8 am – noon.
