The YMCA accepts Child Care Assistance (CCAP) funds, administered through 4C. Child Care Assistance (CCAP) is a child care financial assistance program provided by the Illinois Department of Human Services for working families.
Don’t wait! The application process can up to 45 days for new applicants to receive approval.
1. You must apply through 4C, and list the Kishwaukee Family YMCA as your provider. Click here for the application.
2. Once you apply for CCAP assistance we require a confirmation receipt that DHS has received your application. We must have an approval letter before you are able to register.
3. After you are accepted into the program you are responsible for paying the parent assigned monthly co-pay each month in addition to the differential. The differential is the daily cost of our program less the daily rate by CCAP. If you qualify, your assistance can be applied for all of our weeks of camp.
For questions about 4C, please contact Ry Caldwell, Office Support Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
