- Offers parents help with paying child care bills
- Part of the Self-Reliance Program
- The Department also provides childcare assistance to low-income, working families through Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP). ICCP is based on family income and subsidizes childcare payments on a sliding fee scale.
- The ICCP helps low-income families pay for childcare. This program is for parents who work or attend school. It is also for parents who participate in approved activities to help prevent children from being placed in foster care.
- The program pays for some childcare costs; parents also pay for a portion. The portion that parents pay is called the “co-payment.” The parent’s share is based on the size of the family and the amount of their income.
- Family size-the amount a family is eligible for depends on number of people in the family
- Activity-ICCP will cover part of the costs for child care only while parents are working, attending school or attending approved activities. The number of childcare hours ICCP will help pay for is arranged between the parents and the case worker.
- Income-to be eligible, a family’s income must meet ICCP income limits. (ICCP maximum income is 150% if the 1998 Federal Poverty Guidelines for the family size):
