    Default Child care subsidy

    Just curious how to go about applying for this. I've been searching to no avail. I figured I'd give my tired old brain a break and ask you smart ladies!

    Also, what does your income have to look like in order to get the subsidy?

    You can contact the city of london or google Subsidy London or whatever and get the contact number.

    You will have to fill out an application with your relevant info, and include your tax assessment.

    It's pretty simple and straight forward

    LOL! Well thanks Leigh. I'm not so sure about the DC subsidy, but I have been wanting to look into it for a while.

    There is a long waiting list and you have to meet certain requirements. Here is the application link

    I waited 4 months to get mine - and I made under $20,000 the year before (so the income they looked at).

    I first applied 7 years ago, when they looked at income AND expenses.. the rules have changed so much since then. Now its all based on income...

    I applied for my son months ago, based on his needs. i`m not working, not a student. Even though he`s medically in need of it for his development, we`re at the bottom. yes, he`s been waiting since fall. at least 6 months now!

    They prioritize by income, as well as if yourè on OW, then if you are in school, etc.. its quite a pain in the neck. they have quite a system now of determining who gets it, how much, and in what order.. oh yeah, and its all dependent on whether they even have the funds to begin with.. Strathroy has been telling me since October they don`t have any money to give out subsidy, and `don`t know when they will``
