DEL Child Care Subsidy Rules


Printer-friendly version

The Department of Early Learning (DEL) adopts regulations (also known as rules, Washington Administrative Code, or WAC) for programs that help parents pay for child care. The Working Connections Child Care (WCCC) and Seasonal Child Care (SCC) programs provide state-paid child care subsidies to eligible families while the parents work or attend approved training or education.

WCCC and SCC program rules are in WAC 170-290.
