Families without access to Military Child Care

ChildCare Aware® of America (formerly known as NACCRRA) is working with the U.S. Military Services to help those who serve in the military find and afford child care that suits their unique needs.

Through the fee assistance program, families are eligible to receive monthly fee assistance to help offset the cost of child care in their communities, when there is no access to an on-base child care provider, or for those military people that live in the outlying communities. Fee assistance programs are provided for children ages birth through 12 years. Fee assistance amounts vary by program. For many programs, your fee assistance will be based on your total family income and provider rate.

Child Care Aware® of America staff is focused on providing excellent customer service to our military families. If you need assistance, please call toll free at 1-800-424-2246 or email to For general information on program eligibility, visit
