Arizona Back to Work Child Care for Returning Workers
As part of the state’s Back to Work program, Arizona will provide three months of child care assistance for individuals with children who return to work after collecting unemployment benefits. To be eligible, an individual must have already filed for unemployment benefits and earn $25 per hour, equivalent to a yearly salary of $52,000, or less at their new job.
