The Department of Social Services administers a variety of programs providing child care assistance to low-income working families. Some of these programs are only available to families who are enrolled in TANF or participating in the Prince William County Schools Head Start Program. The child care subsidy program is available to any low income working family that meets the eligibility requirements. Funding for child care programs is limited, so families requesting assistance are often placed on a waiting list. Child care services are provided to eligible families with children under the age of 13, or age 18 if the child has special needs.
