Child Care Assistance Program Requirements

  • Parents must continuously be in an eligible activity,
  • Parents must provide income verification before approval,
  • Families that qualify must directly pay “a parental fee” to their childcare provider for a portion of the total cost, and
  • Eligibility for continued assistance is periodically re-determined.
  • Parents must cooperate with Child Support Services.

These are the primary factors used to determine eligibility for this program.  Eligibility will be determined by the Child Care Assistance Program staff when the applicant has completed the Child Care Assistance application, orientation by phone, and provided necessary verification.

Applications may be completed online at  or you may use the PEAK Kiosk computer available at the Douglas County Human Services building, 4400 Castleton Court, Castle Rock.  Paper applications are available at the Douglas County Department of Human Services and can be mailed upon request.
