What We Do:

Promise NYC is a program funded by New York City that will cover the cost of child care at a child care provider of the family’s choice.

Who We Do it For:

Children may be eligible if: 

  • Their immigration status makes them ineligible for other, federally-funded subsidized child care
  • They live in New York City
  • They are 6 months to 13 years old 
  • Your household income is below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level, which means a household of:
      • 2 with income under $4,578 per month ($54,930 per year) 
      • 3 with income under $5,758 per month ($69,090 per year) 
      • 4 with income under $6,938 per month ($83,250 per year) 
      • 5 with income under $8,118 per month ($97,410 per year) 

Income limits continue to increase for larger families
