Child Care Vouchers

The Voucher Process

Child Care Vouchers is an opportunity to assist your family with the high cost of childcare, beyond the regular school hours.

In order to be approved, you will need to complete two separate steps through two separate agencies.

Please contact us at [email protected] before you begin so we can guide you through the process.


The NYC Administration for Children's Services (ACS) is the agency that will approve your financial eligibility for Child Care Vouchers.

Once your family is approved, you will be issued a Voucher for each child which you can use towards the childcare program of your choice.

After the Voucher is issued, please contact us at so we can assist you with step 2 - applying your Voucher to our program).

As part of this process, you will need to complete a Whedco Enrollment form and submit it to us. Please only submit this form once you are approved by the ACS and are issued a Voucher.

Vouchers FAQ

How do vouchers help me?

Child Care Vouchers can be used to cover the cost of childcare from 3:00-6:00 pm during the school year.

Child Care Vouchers are also available throughout the summer and can be used to cover Bais Rivkah Day Camp enrollment. (Parents will still be responsible to cover the $100 registration fee.)


Does my family qualify?

  • Only families who are NYC residents are eligible for this grant.

  • Both parents (in a 2-parent household) must be working at least 10 hours a week and earning at least minimum wage ($15/h). Parents might qualify if they can prove they are studying or looking for work instead. However this process is harder and the approval lasts for a few months only. Therefore, it is not recommended.

  • Family income must be within 300% of the Federal Poverty Level, as demonstrated by the table below. Family size as listed on your 1040 tax returns form, includes parents and dependent.

Are all my children eligible for vouchers?

Childcare Vouchers are available for school aged children (Pre1A through age 13).

Beth Rivkah is working on obtaining the licensing needed for our younger students to be eligible for Child Care Vouchers. Please include your preschool aged children in the ACS application. As soon as our program is licensed, we will assist you with using your voucher to enroll your daughter in our Preschool Child Care Vouchers program.

High School students with disabilities who have an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and receiving P3 or other related services may be able to extend voucher eligibility. Contact us at [email protected] for more information about this.
