Child Care Assistance (Wisconsin SHARES Program)

Information for Families
The child care assistance program helps low-income working families pay for their child care. Assistance can be provided to families with children up to the age of 13. In special circumstances, children over the age of 13 may be eligible. Families must be income eligible and be in a qualifying activity.
The qualifying activities include:
  • Employment
  • Attending high school (if a teen parent under 20 years of age)
  • Participant in W2 (Wisconsin Works) or FSET (foodshare employment and training)
  • Student in postsecondary education who is also employed a minimum number of hours per week as determined by the program guidelines
The majority of families will pay a portion of the child care costs. The child care benefit will be paid directly to the child care provider.

Child care must be provided by a licensed or certified child care provider.
