Office of Work-Life Programs: Child Care Subsidy

The Coast Guard has established a Child Care Subsidy Benefit to help defray the cost of child care for Active Duty USCG Members and Reservists who have been called to Active Duty for a minimum of 180 consecutive days or longer.  This benefit is to help meet the needs of eligible families where the spouse/partner is working and/or attending school.  Navy Child & Youth Programs (CYP) is administering this Child Care Subsidy Benefit program on behalf of the USCG through the Navy Child & Youth Programs Fee Assistance Program.

The CG does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, age, disability, color, religion, or national origin.
