[ARCHIVED] New Childcare Subsidy for Income-Eligible Local Families


The Towns of Acton, Boxborough, Littleton, Maynard and Westford have been awarded funds from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development through a regional CARES ACT Community Development Block Grant Program to provide COVID-specific relief to local communities.

 Childcare Subsidies are available for low to moderate-Income families in all five towns. Participating families will receive $3,000 for children preschool aged or younger and $2,000 for children in Kindergarten to age 13 towards their daycare or after school costs so that parents and guardians may work, go to school or seek employment.

 Funds will be allocated to income qualified families on a first come, first serve basis by each Town using the income limits below with a maximum award during the grant year not to exceed $5,000 per child. Interested residents should contact the staff person for their Town of residence to seek an application or visit their Town website.
