Child Care After CalWORKs

Families that no longer receive CalWORKs may continue to get help with child care.  This assistance, called Stage Two, helps former CalWORKs recipients who are working or participating in an approved work activity pay for child care for up to 24 months immediately following the last month of cash aid.  Once the family has received all the Stage Two help they can, they may be eligible for child care through Stage Three.  Both Stage Two and Three are handled by the Riverside County Office of Education (RCOE).
