King County has committed $2.2 million to provide child care, free of charge, for essential workers who live or work in the County.  The funding will pay for a slot at select child care providers across the county through at least June.  We need your help to get the word out about this resource to your clients, employees, and communities!

To apply for this free child care, families should call the Child Care Aware of Washington Family Center at 1-800-446-1114 and complete an intake with our Resource Specialists.  We have Spanish speaking representatives and we can provide service in any other language, free of charge.  

Please Note: Verification of employment and/or home address will be required to complete intake. To expedite the intake process, families can send photos of the required verification documents to subsidy@childcare.org. More details are below.

We sincerely thank you for your service to our community during this critical time.
