Supplemental funding for special needs child care

Some children need additional assistance in order to be included in child care. The Alaska Inclusive Child Care Program (Alaska IN!) is administered by the Child Care Program Office to give extra support to families with children who have special needs in accessing inclusive care and offer supplemental funding to providers for training, needed accommodations, and support to help them meet the child’s individual needs.

The purpose of Alaska IN! is to enhance the skills of the child care provider, promote inclusive child care practices in child care settings, and ensure families participating in the Child Care Assistance Program, including children with special needs, have access to child care. This also helps ensure children with special needs have a stable and consistent child care provider who can meet their individual needs.
