Child Care Assistance Program (Military Programs)

Air Force 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(r) of America provide subsidies for eligible military dependents enrolled in quality commercial child care programs throughout the United States. Child Care Aware(r) of America authorizes subsidy amounts based on total family income for those eligible Air Force families, and supplies monthly payments directly to the prospective child care provider.
