To apply for subsidized child care (CAPS program) in Georgia, families must be a resident of the state of Georgia. Georgians are now able to apply for child care online with Georgia COMPASS at www.compass.ga.gov. Georgia COMPASS allows customers to check their potential eligibility and apply for child care online. Customers, who create an account in Georgia COMPASS, can check the status of their application online and renew their benefits.
If funding is not available, Georgia COMPASS will report that funding for the program has been exhausted during the initial application process. Only people meeting the priority qualifications will be eligible for services once the funding has exhausted. Those seeking childcare services should check Georgia COMPASS periodically for notification when funding becomes available.
