Financial Assistance

The Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) operates Pennsylvania's child care subsidy program statewide, including in Venango and Crawford Counties. The ELRC helps income-eligible families to find and pay for child care or early childhood education (including before- and after-school care and summertime care) so the parents can work or attend school.

Many families are not aware that they and their child care provider are eligible for ELRC funding. If your family meets the income and work or school requirements of the program, and your child care provider qualifies, the ELRC may be able to help you. Just contact the ELRC and we can make that determination for you.
