Financial Assistance for State Employees and Department of Transportation Employees
Thanks to a generous contribution from the building fund of the State Transportation Building, we are able to offer financial assistance to state employees and Department of Transportation employees.
Financial assistance is limited and will be awarded based on funding on a first-come, first-served basis to parents whose combined family gross income is $85,000 or less after deducting $2,500 times the number of dependents in the household.
To apply for financial assistance through this program, a financial assistance application must be completed and returned with a signed copy of your most recent federal income tax form and W-2 form(s) for all contributing members of the household.
Financial assistance applications are available upon request. The completed forms must be submitted to the Executive Director, who will review all materials and determine financial eligibility. This information will be held in strict confidence.
Assistance will be given on an annual basis and deducted weekly for the cost of care. A copy of the financial assistance scale is available upon request.
M.B.T.A. Reserved Slot Program
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority established a Tuition Assistance Program that uses a sliding fee scale to help employees meet the cost of child care. TCC is one of the child care centers the M.B.T.A. has contracted with through the Reserved Slot Child Care Program for subsidized slots for qualifying employees. Families who wish to apply should contact the M.B.T.A. Human Resources Department.
TCC has contracted with various agencies for parents seeking financial assistance through voucher slots in our program. Through these agencies, families meeting the income requirements for a voucher will be eligible for substantial tuition reductions. To apply for a voucher, families must apply at their local agency.
