Reminder: Employment Related Day Care Program opens Waitlist on November 4, 2023

As of this month, November 2023, the Employment Related Day Care program opened a waitlist because of the increased demand and limited funding. Families currently receiving ERDC will not be affected by the waitlist and will continue receiving benefits.  

To learn more about this waitlist and find resources for families visit our ERDC website page.

The updated Employment Related Day Care (ERDC) Child Care Provider Guide will be shipped to ERDC providers soon. You can also access the new guide online in English, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, and Simplified Chinese. ERDC providers can visit for more information, forms, and resources.
