The Louisiana Department of Education established a waitlist for the Child Care Assistance Program begins October 1.
LDOE said eligible families can apply before the waitlist begins.
The current program serves approximately 24,500 children in Louisiana under the age of 13.
CCAP provides financial support and allows parents or guardians to pay for high-quality child care services.
Applicants that apply before October 1 who are determined eligible, will receive funding immediately. Eligible applicants that apply on or after October 1 will be placed on the waitlist.
