Definition and Source



This indicator represents the number of children ages 0 through 13 whose families receive North Dakota Child Care Assistance. The purpose of the Child Care Assistance Program is to help with child care costs for low-income families while they are working or participating in allowable training or allowable education programs. For eligible families, the North Dakota Department of Human Services pays a percentage of their child-care bill determined by using a sliding fee scale. Payment is made directly to the child care provider.

The denominator for the percentage is the total child population ages 0 through 13 in respective geographic areas.
