NJ Cares for Kids

Mercer County families may be eligible for financial assistance with the cost of child care through the New Jersey Cares for Kids program. Eligibility is determined by family size, employment and/or education hours, and income (click here for NJCK Income Eligibility chart). Parents or guardians can call, visit, or write the Child Care Connection to receive an application, or download an application and related documents from the Forms section at right. While instructions are included, NJCK program staff provide assistance with the application process. Once approved for a subsidy, staff continue to assist parents with changes and any other areas that might affect their continued eligibility.

Parents: Before applying for the NJCK program, view this PowerPoint presentation, which contains essential information on this program!

For additional information, please call the NJCK Unit directly at 609/989-8035.
