How to Apply for Assistance with Washington County


Call the Washington County financial intake line at 651-430-6459 to be screened for eligibility or, if you already receive another type of public assistance, ask your case worker about applying. There may be a waiting list for basic sliding fee child care assistance.

If you are eligible to receive an application:
  • An application will be mailed to you unless there is a waiting list. If there is a waiting list, your name will be added to it.
  • If you received an application, you need to return the completed application along with all required verifications within 15 days.
  • The worker has 30 days to process an application from the date it is received in the agency.
