Effective February 2024, Workforce Solutions of Central Texas began a waitlist for child care financial aid. At this time, we are not outreaching families from the waitlist, but will provide updates once we begin outreach.

On July 1, 2024, Texas Workforce Commission will present a new system called Texas Child Care Connection (TX3C) for the Child Care Services program.

New applications for the CCS program will be temporarily unavailable from June 3, 2024 – June 30, 2024. 

We appreciate your patience while Workforce Solutions of Central Texas and Texas Workforce Commission complete the transition to TX3C.

The new system will feature the following:

  • A new statewide application for families.
  • An easy-to-use interface that works with mobile devices.
  • A common user experience for all Texans.
