The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) helps parent(s) who are working or in school pay for child care through the Publicly Funded Child Care (PFCC) program. 

You may be required to pay for part of your child care in the form of a copayment. The amount you pay is based on your gross income and family size. Click here to view what your copayment could be monthly.
