Child care is an essential service that can be challenging to find and afford. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets (VAAFM) understands that we are often the first place agriculture professionals turn to for resources and have compiled several helpful links from the Child Development Division of the Vermont Department of Children and Families (DCF).
Are you attempting to locate child care? Try searching the Find Child Care database at DCF.
Are you in need of financial assistance to pay for child care? Please review the Child Care Financial Assistance program from DCF. The Child Care Financial Assistance Program (CCFAP), also known as subsidy, can help your family pay for child care.
Below you will find the most recently updated CCFAP brochure and booklet:

- Your local Community Child Care Support Agency can also help you find child care in your area and answer any questions you have.
- Additionally, we have linked an updated “Accepted Service Needs” document that provides some specific information about accessing CCFAP for those who are self-employed farmers. Find that document here: CCFAP - Accepted Service Needs
