Childcare Programs

SHIP offers quality child care assistance to low-income Woodbury and Ida County families. To see if your family is eligible for assistance, please download the Federal Poverty Guidelines chart (only total household income between 146% – 185% qualifies).

SHIP Application – CHILDCARE FY16
SHIP Guidelines – Child Care Scholarships FY15
Federal Poverty Guidelines 2016

If your family qualifies, call any of the quality providers listed below and ask if they have any SHIP scholarship slots available. Each provider will work with you to determine your eligibility and amount of assistance. Families must present evidence of income (a 30 history of pay stubs or for self employed, previous year’s tax documents) to providers. All adults in household must be working full-time, going to school full-time (or a combination of both).

If your child is preschool age (aged 3-5 years), please see the “Preschool Programs” page.

Please note that funds are available only to families receiving care from providers who have received a 3-star rating or above from the Iowa Quality Rating System.
