Our goal is to help parents of Alaska Native and Native American Children afford reliable, quality child care while they:
- Work part time or full time jobs
- Are in school or training – part time or full time
- Looking for work
- Engaged in qualifying subsistence activities
Eligibility Requirements for parent/s applying for subsidy service:
- Children must be Alaska Native and/or American Indian, provide documentation
- Immunizations must be up-to-date
- Gross family income must be at or below the current 85% State Median Income threshold
ONC knows that finding reliable, affordable child care service is a barrier to working, going to school, or finding work to become self-reliant. We would like to help our people become successful and independent.
If you love children and child care, ONC’s Child Care Services also approves and trains both relative and non-relative Child Care Providers. This service allows for providers to have steady, reliable income.
- Applicants and all individuals 16 years of age and older, who live in the home where child care is to be provided must pass a criminal background check.
- All immunizations must be up-to-date (relative providers may be exempt from this requirement).
- Prior to approval, department staff will do a Health and Safety Inspection of the place where child care is being provided.
