Alternative Payment Program for Central Valley Families
We support thousands of working families and children in Fresno and surrounding counties by ensuring that working parents have a choice of programs that focus on the needs and educational development of children.
Supportive Services, Inc. Alternative Payment Program is a parental choice child care subsidy program funded by grants from the state and federal government. Parents must meet Title 5 Eligibility and Need Regulations as mandated by the California Department of Education, Early Learning and Care Division (CDE, ELCD).
The program may pay for all or part of the cost of child care for children ages birth through 12 years (children with exceptional needs may be served to age 21). The child care subsidy follows the child, which means that if hours of need change, the family moves, or a child needs a different setting the parent can select a new provider.
As a parental choice program, Supportive Services, Inc. child care subsidy program believes parents are best able to choose and evaluate child care for their own children. Our goal is to assist parents in finding a wide range of services available by referring them to our local resource and referral agency, Central Valley Children’s Services Network, at (559) 456-1100.
