Child Care Assistance Available to La Porte Residents

(La Porte, IN) - La Porte’s Economic Advancement Partnership is chipping in to help bolster the local workforce.


The city’s economic development group is offering to help pay for child care for La Porte parents who have had trouble rejoining the workforce due to child care costs.


$50 per week is available to eligible La Porte residents. According to the terms of the program, "The qualified candidate must demonstrate and provide proof that they have actively pursued and obtained full-time employment in the Greater La Porte area to be considered." La Porte’s YMCA and Toddle Tykes Daycare are the authorized child care providers working with the program. The daycare grants are good for up to one year.
