Child care options for Coast Guard employees
The Coast Guard provides several options to support families needing care for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years (6th grade).
Option 2: Apply to the Coast Guard Child Care Fee Assistance (CCFA) program to offset the cost of a private childcare provider.
Your provider must have a state license and be in good standing. You can search for a licensed provider through Childcare Aware.
The fee assistance is paid to the provider after the sponsor pays the total monthly child care fee, and is not paid in advance. Visit the CCFA website to learn more or enroll.
