In order to address the impacts of COVID-19 and to support Texas’ continued economic recovery, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is implementing a Service Industry Recovery (SIR) child care program to help low-wage workers in TWC-specified service industries who generally operate in close quarters with their customers and whose jobs cannot be accomplished remotely.
Highlights of the SIR program:
- 12 months of eligibility
- $0 parent share of cost
- Less required eligibility documentation
(While TWC is targeting aspects of the service sector with SIR child care, all families continue to have access to TWC’s regular low-income child care subsidy program.)
At least one parent must be currently employed or entering employment in one of the following TWC-specified service industries:
- Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation: NAICS 71
- Accommodation and Food Services: NAICS 72
- Retail Trade: NAICS 44-45
One-parent households must be working a minimum of 25 hours per week and a two-parent household must be working a total of 50 hours per week to qualify.
The family income is at or below 75 percent of State Median Income (SMI). To see if you meet this requirement, click here and scroll down to the family income table.
