Child Care Assistance
Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP)
CCAP helps pay for child care so low income families can work, job search, or attend school while moving towards self-sufficiency. CCAP helps pay for children up to age 12 and for children with special needs up to age 14.

There are three types of funding:
  • Families participating in Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP)
  • Families that had an MFIP case close within the last 12 months (TY)
  • Low-income families that may be eligible for the Basic Sliding Fee program (BSF)

  • Pick up an application at Blue Earth County Government Center or call and request materials at (507) 304-4162. 
  • Visit ApplyMN to apply online.  Please note that verification and additional forms will be required.
  • Print off an application.
