Child Care Assistance Program

Project CHILD administers the Illinois Department of Human Service’s (IDHS) Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) to families in southern Illinois. This program provides low-income, working families with access to quality, affordable child care. This child care allows them to continue working and/or complete their education. All families are required to cost-share on a sliding scale based on family size, and income.
