FINANCING YOUR CHILD CARE EXPENSES

Focus on highest standards combined with many other factors, the cost of quality child care has been consistently rising. Students, working single mothers and also families with lower income find such escalated costs prohibitive. To help alleviate hardships due to high child care costs, the government has come up with some programs which may be very helpful for those who need them. Following are some of the most popular programs:
 

a) New Jersey Cares for Kids (NJCK):

NJCK program is a subsidized child care voucher program that provides partial payment to child care providers on behalf of the applicant. The applicant is required to pay a co-payment based on their family size and income.
Program Requirements:

  • An NJCK application must be completed.
  • Applicant and co-applicant must prove their income by providing consecutive pay stubs.
  • Proof of any other income needs to be provided (ex. Child support, Alimony, Social Security, etc…)
  • Applicant and co-applicant must be working and/or going to school a minimum of 30 hours (full time
    credit hours for school).
  • A child care provider that accepts the NJCK Voucher Program must be chosen as the care giver.

 
For more information about the NJCK Program please contact Shellinda Hardie at 609-835-4329 ext 4040 or email shardie@oel.state.nj.us or Bonnie Jackson at 609-239-4018. The NJCK office is located at One VanSciver Parkway, Willingboro, NJ.

 

b)Work First New Jersey (WFNJ):

WFNJ is a subsidized child care voucher program for people who are receiving or have received TANF within the past two years. The applicant will be assigned a “To Work” assignment through Employment Services. This program allows the applicant to gain experience in the workforce to enable him/her to return to work.


As a first step, interested applicants must contact the Board of Social Services at 609-261-1000.

For more information about the WFNJ Program please contact Ruth Ragin at 609-261-6834 ext. 130 or
email ruragin@oel.state.nj.us

Our center has been working with these agencies for several years and a number of families are able to get child care every week mainly because of these programs.
