Child Care Aware of America Programs

Child Care Aware of America Programs (CCA) are designed to assist military families who do not have access to child care programs on the installation to find child care off of the installation. CCA will also help with fee assistance, if the family and the child care program they select are eligible.

Families must be on the installation waiting lists through to qualify for fee assistance from CCA. Visit

All military Child and Youth Programs in the National Capital Region will begin using 

(MCC), a centralized DoD request for care website. If you need to place a new request for care or are on an existing waitlist in the National Capital Region (including all branches of Service), all of your child care requests will now be placed and managed on MCC.

Families on an existing waitlist(s): If you are a family on a current waitlist in the National Capital Region, your existing requests will be transferred to MCC for you. On 16 March, you will receive an email with instructions to login and create an account so that you can access your requests.

Families not on an existing waitlist. If you are not on an existing waitlist in the National Capital Region, you may create an account on MCC at any time.
Just follow the four simple steps below:

  1. Create an Account: Go to to create an account containing information about your family, or login using an existing username and password.
  2. Search and Request Care: Search the system for the child care options that best fit your needs and submit your requests for care.
  3. Manage Requests: You can manage your requests for care from anywhere in the world.
  4. Update Profile: Keep your My Profile page up-to-date with important information.
