LAS VEGAS - May 27, 2022 - PRLog -- Las Vegas Urban League's Early Childhood Connection (ECC) wants parents to know that case managers are available to assist in funding to curtail the costs of summer camp programs for children ages 5 to 13.

"Any parent enrolled in college, trade school, or employed can apply for childcare services to cover summer camp costs," Las Vegas Urban League Early Childhood Connection Eligibility Manager Leo Gomez said. "We encourage parents to come to our office, so we can give them personal assistance and explain the requirements for assistance."

ECC works with summer camps in the cities of Henderson, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Clark County. Parents who qualify for financial assistance, based on household income and the size of the household, can receive a certificate to cover a portion of summer camp costs.

Summer Camp schedules normally run from May 31 to the first week in August, Gomez said. He encourages parents to get their childcare applications in early to secure slots for their kids.

"We want our community to know we are here to support it," Gomez said. "We are here to help parents with this essential service now that schools are on summer break, so their children can be in a safe environment and engage in fun and productive activities. Summer camp costs are expenses parents shouldn't have to pay on their own."

For more information, families are encouraged to email childcareinfo@lvul.org or visit our website at https://www.childcarelv.org. The ECC office is located at 2470 N. Decatur Suite 150 Las Vegas, NV 89108. Office hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Las Vegas Urban League (LVUL) Early Childhood Connection (ECC) Child Care Subsidy Program assists eligible families with the cost of childcare using a provider of the parent's choice. The parent may use a Family, Friend, or Neighbor (FFN) provider as their caregiver if they register with the Subsidy Program and meet program requirements.

There is currently no waiting list for services. The state has extended the eligibility up to 85 percent SMI (State Medium Income) to increase the number of families eligible for childcare assistance.

Both providers and families can participate in free Nevada Registry-approved classes on child development, health and safety, and other topics related to providing quality care for children. Families can also get assistance locating licensed childcare in their community through LVUL ECC.

The Las Vegas Urban League is a 501c (3) program funded by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health.
