Child Care Aware Benefits
What is the Military Fee Assistance Program?
The military fee assistance program, administered by Child Care Aware® of America, serves active duty and deployed Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps families. Fee assistance is provided in the form of monthly payments to the family’s child care provider in order to offset the higher cost of off-base care by paying a portion of the family’s child care costs. The amount of fee assistance provided to each family is unique and based on a variety of factors, including geographic location, total family income, and the rate that the family is charged for child care.
