GSA Army Fee Assistance Child Care Subsidy

Army Child Care Fee Assistance was created to provide authorized Reserve and Active Duty personnel assistance in locating, selecting, and offsetting the cost of civilian child care, when on-base child care is not available, or a viable option for the service member and their family. The programs available through Child Care Aware® of America provide subsidies for eligible military dependents enrolled in quality commercial child care programs throughout the United States. Child Care Aware® of America authorizes subsidy amounts based on Total Family Income (TFI) for those eligible Army families, and supplies monthly payments directly to the prospective child care provider.

FEEA Child Care Subsidy Program

The cost of child care often represents a significant portion of an employee’s take-home pay. This is especially true for those with lower incomes. FEEA Childcare Services, Inc., an independent, for-profit subsidiary of FEEA, partners with nearly twenty federal agencies to administer Congressionally-authorized childcare subsidy programs.
