The Wisconsin Shares Child Care Subsidy Program supports low-income working families by subsidizing a portion of the cost of quality child care while the parents or caregivers are working or participating in another approved activity. Wisconsin Shares is implemented locally by counties and tribes.
Who Can Get Wisconsin Shares?
Low-income working families with children under the age of 13 may be eligible for Wisconsin Shares. If a child has a special need, the child may remain eligible until the child’s 19th birthday.
Parents must be working or participating in another approved activity to receive Wisconsin Shares . If there are two parents in the household, subsidy will only be issued for the time when the parents’ work or other approved activity schedules overlap.
