Child care subsidies are programs that help cover the cost of child care for eligible families. The Employment Related Day Care (ERDC) program is a child care subsidy for working families. Many families who get help from DHS will pay part of the cost of care; this is called a copayment. This page will help you determine how much you might pay. The income limits are lower for families who are newly applying or applying after a break in ERDC assistance. Click on "Not Receiving ERDC assistance" if you do not have an open ERDC case. Click on "Receiving ERDC assistance" if you currently have an open ERDC case or you are completing your 12 month ERDC recertification.
