(a)(1) An Executive agency may establish a child care subsidy program in which the agency
uses appropriated funds, in accordance with this subpart, to assist lower-income employees
of the agency with their child care costs. The assistance may be provided for both full-time and part-time child care, and
may include before-and-after-school programs and daytime summer programs.
(2) Two or more agencies may pool their funds to establish a child care subsidy program
for the benefit of employees who are served by a Federally-sponsored child care center
in a multi-tenant facility.
(3)(i) Except as provided under paragraph (a)(3)(ii) of this section, an agency may impose
restrictions on the use of appropriated funds for its child care subsidy program based
on consideration of employees' needs, its own staffing needs, the local availability
of child care, and other factors as determined by the agency. For example, an agency may decide to restrict eligibility for subsidies to—
(A) Full-time permanent employees;
(B) Employees using an agency on-site child care center;
(C) Employees using full-time child care; or
(D) Employees using child care in specific locations.
(ii) An agency may not limit the payment of subsidies to accredited child care providers.
(b) Subject to any restrictions applicable under paragraph (a)(3)(i) of this section,
an employee who qualifies as a lower-income employee under the agency's child care
subsidy program is eligible to receive a child care subsidy for the care of each child
under age 13 or, in the case of a disabled child, under age 18.
