The AmeriCorps Childcare Benefits Program provides benefits paid to qualified childcare providers for all or of part of the member's childcare costs during their active time of service with AmeriCorps.
The AmeriCorps Childcare Benefit Program is available for qualified, active,
full-time AmeriCorps VISTA, AmeriCorps NCCC, and AmeriCorps State and National members who
need the benefit to serve. Eligibility requirements are listed below for each AmeriCorps program.
Childcare benefits are paid directly to qualified childcare providers for
all or of part of the member's childcare costs during their active time of service
with AmeriCorps; childcare benefit payments cannot be paid directly to AmeriCorps
members. Childcare benefits may not exceed applicable State Maximum Reimbursement Rates as
established in the state in which the childcare is provided under the
Childcare and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 42 USC 9801.
