State Assistance Information

  • Families  

    The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has approved the Ozark R-VI Tiger Care Program under the section for Childcare Licensing and Regulations, which allows the program to accept childcare assistance from the state department. 

    The state Childcare Subsidy Program assists eligible parents/guardians with payments for childcare in Missouri. The purpose of this program is to help families with the cost of childcare so that they are able to focus on finding and holding steady jobs. The rates/sliding fees are based on household size, need for care, and the household’s gross income. For more information, go to Missouri Department of Social Services.

    The Childcare Subsidy Program does not cover the $50 deposit fee required per child, unless the child qualifies for foster/adoptive care.
