Why Enroll to Accept NH Child Care Scholarship?

NH Child Care Scholarship Program reduces the cost of child care for Granite State families, so they can put more of their household’s income toward family needs like housing, food, nourishing childhood experiences, and more.

Enrolling to accept Child Care Scholarship provides a stable, enrollment-based source of income to support programming and contributes to overall staff satisfaction by knowing that the families in their care have greater financial security.

Now that Child Care Scholarship eligibility has expanded, more Granite State families qualify, including child care providers themselves.
