General Information

Workforce Solutions subsidizes the cost of child care services for eligible families in Hidalgo, Starr and Willacy counties through the administration of the Child Care Services (CCS) program. Child Care providers should be aware that the families they serve may be eligible for this assistance.

As a provider, you may receive this funding for the services you provide by becoming an authorized child care provider with Workforce Solutions. After receiving authorization the CCS parents record attendance daily by using the Child Care Attendance Automation (CCAA) system.  Providers will then receive payment, on attendance properly reported, either monthly or bimonthly.

If you are interested in becoming a Workforce Solutions authorized child care provider, please contact Sandra Solis by phone at (956) 928-5000 or by e-mail at sandra.solis @

For information on Child Care Licensing, Standards & Regulations, visit the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services website.

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) website also provides valuable information, including information on becoming an accredited provider (such as a Texas Rising Star Provider).
