Childcare Subsidies.

The cost of childcare often represents a significant portion of an employee’s take-home pay. This is especially true for those with lower incomes. FEEA Childcare Services, Inc., an independent, for-profit subsidiary of FEEA, partners with nearly twenty federal agencies to administer Congressionally-authorized childcare subsidy programs.

The law, enacted in 2001, confers regulatory authority on OPM for agencies’ use of appropriated funds for childcare costs for lower-income Federal employees.
