The 2019 Legal Guide to Child Care Subsidies in California

We are in the process of updating our legal guide to child care subsidies in California. The following chapters are currently available:

Chapter 1 – Overview of Child Care Subsidy Administration and Categories
Chapter 2 – CalWORKs Child Care Subsidies, Stage 1
Chapter 3 – California Department of Education Child Care Subsidies

Chapters covering payment procedures and other topics are underway. Please email us at if you do not find the answer you need here.

This publication is intended to provide general information about the topic covered. It is made available with the understanding that the Child Care Law Center is not engaged in rendering legal or other professional advice. We believe it is current as of April 2019 but the law changes often. If you need legal advice, you should consult an attorney who can specifically advise or represent you.
