Description:Santa Cruz County CEL is here to support families in need of subsidized child development services countywide. A change in State funding means that now a CEL is no longer mandatory in each county and that contractors may now keep their own waiting lists. Our local Santa Cruz County Centralized Waiting List is now a voluntary collaboration by program administrators to serve families in need of subsidized child development services countywide.

The Santa Cruz County Centralized Waiting List is a system that allows subsidized child development providers in the system to access children that are eligible for their programs. On this list, families are ranked by eligibility factors for subsidized care (income, size, and need), not just time on the list.

ELIGIBILITY: Parents must live in Santa Cruz County, meet income requirements, and have at least one of the following needs:
Working or actively seeking employment;
Medically incapacitated;
Receiving Child Protective Services;
Attending school or a job-related program that leads directly to a recognized trade, profession or para-profession;
Actively seeking permanent housing (for homeless families only).
