Essential Workers and At-risk Populations Seeking Financial Assistance for Child Care

We are supporting essential workers and at-risk populations with financial assistance for child care services through September 30, 2020. Funding is provided by the City and County of San Diego and limited.

Financial assistance for child care is available for children, ages 0-12, and youth, ages 13-21, currently on an Individualized Education Plan. Parents must confirm child care services are needed.

Family eligibility and priority information

1 – At-risk populations including children at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation; children eligible through Emergency Child Care Bridge Program for Foster Children; families experiencing homelessness, or children of domestic violence survivors.

2 – Essential workers whose total family income does not exceed the current income eligibility threshold and are not able to work remotely. Both parents must be essential workers to qualify.
Review list of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers.

3 – Families with children with disabilities or special health care needs whose IEPs and IFSPs include ELC services.

4 – Essential workers listed in #2 above, whose total family income exceeds the current income eligibility threshold and are not able to work remotely.


Our community relies on essential and courageous providers like you so we can continue or return to work.

The San Diego community recognizes the increased challenges, costs, and responsibilities facing our child care providers and unites in gratitude to provide financial assistance.
