DHS/ELD News Release [3/17/20] “Oregon expands child care benefits to support families and providers during spread of COVID-19”

     The temporary changes, which are effective immediately, will help more low-income, working families access child care and help providers stay in business during the state of emergency.  Providers, parents and caretakers may contact the DHS Direct Pay Unit with questions Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1-800-699-9074. 

     The temporary changes are: Eliminating co-pays for eligible families; Providing access to more families by increasing the income limit from 185 percent of the federal poverty level ($4,040 per month for a family of four) to 250 percent of the federal poverty level or 85 percent of the state median income, whichever is higher for the family size ($5,899 per month for a family of four); Ensuring more certainty for providers. Child care providers are able to continue to receive payments from DHS, even if children are unable to attend or if they have to temporary shut down during the state of emergency.
