The Family Child Care (FCC) Program includes certification of in-home day care, child care subsidy program, referrals to state certified child care centers and state licensed child care homes. Coast Guard in-home FCC providers are able to offer quality care through attending required training, monitoring of the home by the FRS, and maintaining standards set forth in Commandant Instruction M1754.15 (Chapter 5). Spouses interested in this program may contact the FRS for further information.
The USCG Child Care Subsidy Benefit Program was created to assist Coast Guard members who use any federal child care center, or any state licensed child care facility which includes child development centers as well as licensed in-home child care providers, to provide childcare for their children. The benefit is available to Active Duty Members and Active Duty Reservists called to action for 180 days or longer. Families will qualify for subsidy benefits in accordance with the U.S. Coast Guard Child Care Subsidy Benefit Table and is based upon the member’s Total Family Income. Contact your FRS for more information or assistance on applying for the benefit.
