The Employment Related Day Care program (ERDC) helps eligible low-income working families pay for child care. This helps parents to stay employed, and children to be well cared-for in stable child care arrangements.
ERDC helps approximately 20,000 Oregon families every year pay for child care for approximately 35,000 children each year.
ERDC also works with providers and other child care partners across the state to help families find and keep good child care, improve the availability of quality child care in Oregon, and to develop resources for parents and child care providers.
The ERDC Reservation List has been activated: January 1, 2014.
Not all families are subject to the reservation list, contact your local DHS office for more information.
