The Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP) program provides child care assistance to families who are working, searching for employment, or are in training, and families who are enrolled in the Colorado Works program and need child care services to support their efforts toward self-sufficiency. CCCAP provides you access to reduced cost child care at licensed child care facilities or qualified (unlicensed) providers.
The Colorado Child Care Assistance Program is administered through county departments of social/human services under the direction of the CDHS Division of Early Care and Learning. Counties set income maximums for eligibility for families, but must serve families with income of 165 percent or less of the federal poverty guideline (if funding allows), and may not serve families that have income of over 85 percent of the state median income.

Recipients with income are responsible to pay a portion of the cost of care.
