Federal employees interested in participating in the Child Care Subsidy program should contact their agency’s Child Care Subsidy Point of Contact (POC).
Employees must submit an application form and be prepared to provide copies of their recent pay stubs and/or latest IRS tax submissions. If a family receives local and/or State child care subsidies, they must indicate the source and the amount on their application.
Today, more than 110 independently operated, child care centers are located in the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA)-managed spaces across the country. To find a child care center, visit: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/104495.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) signed into law on March 23, 2010, amended section 7(r) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This amendment requires employers to provide a private space, other than a bathroom, for an employee to express breast milk for up to 1 year after the birth of an employee’s child that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public. Federal agencies are required to provide employees a private space, permanent or temporary, consistent with these requirements.
To learn more about the programs and policies at your agency, contact your agency’s work-life or worksite lactation coordinator. You can find your agency's coordinators by searching OPM's Work-Life Contact Database.
