The YMCA participates in the Child Care Subsidy program through DHHS If you feel you need financial assistance, please visit DHHS's ACCESSNebraska. Child Care assistance is available through the Child Care Subsidy Program, but you must complete an online application. Since the State of NE has this program in place, the YMCA does not typically offer financial assistance. When applying for assistance, you will need our Provider #03334361. Our provider name is “Norfolk Family YMCA.” Please request that they cover the $25 Enrollment Fee as well; DHHS will pay it one time only. Shayla must have the Kids Club Enrollment paperwork, Immunization Records, and DHHS's Child Care Authorization before the child can start participating in Y Kids Club.
