New Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) Eligibility Questionnaire available to parents and caretakers!
The Eligibility Questionnaire allows parents and caretakers to answer a few questions to see if they are eligible for CCAP. There are three sections to the tool; child eligibility, activity eligibility, and financial eligibility. Most of the questions are yes or no questions and the entire questionnaire takes 10 minutes or less to complete. When they are finished, families are referred to LDSS to apply or get more information.
You can access the questionnaire directly by going to: https://hs.ocfs.ny.gov/CCAPeligibility/. Or, go to the OCFS CCAP website at: https://ocfs.ny.gov/programs/childcare/ccap/ and click on “Do I qualify for CCAP”.
