WESTFORD ANNOUNCES CHILDCARE SUBSIDIES FOR LOCAL FAMILIES

 

The town of Westford has been awarded funds from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development through a regional CARES ACT Community Development Block Grant Program to provide COVID-specific relief to local communities. 

 

Childcare Subsidies are available for low to moderate-income families residing in Westford. Participating families will receive $3,000 for children preschool aged or younger and $2,000 for children in kindergarten to age 13 towards their daycare or after school costs so that parents and guardians may work, go to school, or seek employment.

 

Funds will be allocated to income qualified families that submit complete applications on a first come, first serve basis. Applications are considered complete after all supporting income verification documentation has been provided to the town. The town currently has $40,000 in funding available for this new initiative. Program eligibility will be based on the maximum income limits listed below.
