Child care providers can participate in the Idaho Child Care Program's (ICCP) Child Care Assistance, a program that helps low-income families pay for child care. ICCP’s tuition assistance for child care is available to eligible families through the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. This program is for parents who work, attend school, or participate in approved activities to help prevent children from being placed in foster care. Providers need to register with ICCP and meet certain requirements if they want to be ICCP Providers.
