State Financial Assistance
The State of Connecticut announced in August 2021 that it has received child care relief funding through the American Rescue Plan Act. These additional funds have allowed Care 4 Kids to temporarily expand child care assistance to families with income up to 60% of the state median income (SMI), increased from up to 50% SMI, at application.
