If your family is experiencing homelessness, they may have special resources available to help your family pay for child care. On July 3, 2017 Working Connections implemented a homeless grace period (HGP) of 120 days to families experiencing homelessness. Homelessness and income verification are the only eligibility criteria to obtain a full-time child care subsidy for 120 days.
