Alternative Payment Child Care Programs

Subsidized child care is assistance to low-income families to cover all or part of their child care costs.  If you are working, enrolled in school, or participating in an approved welfare-to-work training plan, you may be eligible for financial assistance with your child care costs. 

The California Alternative Payment Program (CAPP) is a California Department of Education (CDE) subsidized child care program. This is a parental choice child care program providing child care subsidies for low-income families in Mono County. The program allows participants to select a child care provider who best meets the needs of their family. Choices include licensed child care centers, licensed family child care homes, and license-exempt child care. The program provides financial assistance for child care costs while ensuring that families can access quality settings for their children. Parents must be income eligible and have a documented need for child care. Eligible parents may be employed, seeking employment, in a training or education program, referred by Social Services, incapacitated, or homeless and seeking either housing or employment or both. IMACA’s CAPP is based on available funding.
