Do you work with low-income families that may be struggling to pay for child care? Then read on!

The Oregon Department of Human Services, Employment Related Day Care (ERDC) program has recently developed a new brochure hoping to provide more community outreach by educating the public of benefits available to families who may be in need of child care assistance.

ERDC is a subsidy program that helps low-income parents pay for child care so they can work. If a parent is eligible, DHS will pay a portion of their child care bill directly to the family's DHS approved provider. The amount DHS will pay is based on the family's income, type of child care and how many hours of care are needed. Most parents are also required to pay a portion of the cost, called the copay, directly to the provider. The copay is determined according to the family income and household size.
