Permanent Change of Station Child Care Program expands eligibility

NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — The Permanent Change of Station Child Care Program here has changed its eligibility requirements to include members who are retiring from the military as well as those who are receiving a medical discharge.

The PCS Child Care Program provides a voucher for 20 hours of free child care per child to use with any of the family child care program’s 21 child care providers.

Military members who are PCSing, retiring or being medically discharged can receive a voucher at the airman and family readiness center. A copy of your orders is all that is required.

“I think broadening the eligibility to those members is great for them in what could be a stressful time in their life,” said Don Murray, AFRC community readiness consultant.

The voucher is good to use through the last 60 days before separation from the military, or PCSing to another base.

“The voucher gives members the ability to focus on moving or preparing for interviews,” said Jessica Sisson, 99th Force Support Squadron Family Child Care coordinator.

“Being able to leave your children with a person who is certified and has a passion for caregiving can relieve the stresses that come with those changes.”

For more information on eligibility or how to receive a voucher, call the AFRC at (702) 652-3327.
