Welcome to the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma (CNO) Child Care Assistance (CCA) Program.   We help eligible families with their financial obligation for child care.

Our goal is to increase the availability, affordability, and quality of the child care services in the 10 1/2 counties of the Choctaw Nation service area.  We service Native American children under the age of 13.

CCA is funded by a federal grant through the Department of Health & Human Services and Administration for Children and Families.  Certain requirements of the Child Care Program are necessary because of federal regulations.  None of the funds used for day care assistance are tribal monies.

Federal funding is applied for annually by the Choctaw Nation in order to allow CCA to:
  • Provide low-income families with the financial resources to find and afford quality child care for their children
  • Enhance the quality and increase the supply of child care for families
  • Provide parents with a broad range of options in addressing their child care needs
  • Strengthen the role of the family
  • Improve the quality of, and coordination among, child care programs and early child development programs
  • Increase the availability of early childhood development and before and after school care programs.
