Subsidized Childcare for Children without Documentation
Promise NYC is a new NYC-administered program, set to launch in January 2023, that will increase access to subsidized childcare for children without documentation, as well as for other children who are ineligible for existing programs due to federal citizenship/immigration rules.
To help launch the program, the NYC Administration for Children Services (ACS) has contracted with four community-based organizations (CBOs) with experience serving immigrant communities and families:
- Center for Family Life will serve families in Brooklyn.
- Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation (NMIC) will serve families in the Bronx and Manhattan.
- La Colmena will serve families in Staten Island.
- Chinese American Planning Council will serve families in Queens.
CBO’s will be responsible for community outreach in their respective boroughs; signing up eligible families for Promise NYC; and supporting families’ search, selection, and enrollment with a childcare program, including issuance of monthly subsidy payments.
The program is expected to support at least 600 children over the next six months.
