    Child Care

    The Montgomery County Department of Job and Family Services can assist some families with child-care payments.  To be eligible for Child Care you must have a minor child and be employed, in school, in training or an OWF Work Activity.  Child Care fees are based on monthly income (earned and unearned) and family size.

    Application packets are available Monday thru Friday 8:00 a.m.  5:00 p.m. at the Job Center or by calling the Child Care Hotline at 937-496-7759 and requesting a packet.  For some individuals who are ineligible due to income, WIA funds may be used to provide assistance.  Please speak with your JFS caseworker about your options.
