The Affordable Child Care benefit (formerly known as the Child Care Subsidy Program) is available to assist low and middle income families with child care costs. Full funding is given for a family income under $45,000 and partial funding for a family income up to $111,000. If you are eligible for the benefit and have a child designated with special needs, you may be eligible for an additional special needs supplement of $150.
