Child Care Aware
Marine Corps Child Care Fee Assistance was created to provide authorized Active Duty personnel assistance in locating, selecting, and offsetting the cost of civilian child care when on-base child care is not available, or a viable option for the service member and their family. The programs available through Child Care Aware® of America provide subsidies for eligible military dependents enrolled in quality commercial child care programs throughout the United States. Child Care Aware® of America authorizes subsidy amounts based on total family income for those eligible Marine Corps families, and supplies monthly payments directly to the prospective child care provider.
In-Home Child Care Fee Assistance Pilot Program
The Department of Defense is committed to ensuring service members and their families have access to the child care they need to be mission ready. To help with expanding child care needs, the DoD is starting a pilot program to offer fee assistance to military families who utilize in-home child care providers such as nannies. The fee assistance pilot program will cover full-time care for a minimum of 30 hours to a maximum of 60 hours of child care weekly.
