MI Tri-Share Child Care Program Guidelines
The MI Tri-Share Child Care Program (Tri-Share) is an innovative approach to increasing access to high quality, affordable child care for working families, with the cost of child care shared by an employer, the employee and the State of Michigan. The pilot also seeks to increase the labor market by allowing employers to offer a child care subsidy to help retain and attract talent. Coordination is being provided regionally by a Facilitator Hub (Hub).
This pilot aims to learn:
- The level of interest from employers in subsidizing the cost of child care for employees.
- How to structure the program to work best for employees, employers, and the State of Michigan.
- How to structure payments to allow federal Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG) funds to be used long term.
This document provides guidance and clarification to the Hubs, employers and child care providers participating in the program and should serve as a guide as the program is implemented.
