Child Care Services Overview

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) child care services program subsidizes child care for low-income families, promoting long-term self-sufficiency by enabling parents to work or attend workforce training or education activities. TWC also provides resources to educate parents about the availability of quality child care, which enhances children’s early learning.

Eligible families may choose from the following child care programs that meet local and state requirements:

  • Licensed child care centers
  • Licensed or registered child care homes
  • Relative (i.e., family member) providers who are 18 years of age or older, and are a grandparent, great-grandparent, aunt, uncle or sibling of the child(ren) receiving care
