Illinois Cares for Kids Website Now Available

Published: July 1, 2021

The Illinois Cares for Kids website is now available to help Illinois residents find resources, programs, and support for infants, toddlers, preschool, or school-aged children. This new website, available in English and Spanish, is funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) and administered by the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA).

The website’s format allows users to find resources, programs, and assistance based on the age of a child, and includes options to learn about additional family programs such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Women, Infant, and Children (WIC), and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP). The website also highlights information on financial assistance available to help families pay for services and care.
