What is Emergency Childcare (ECC)?

Emergency Childcare means a need for childcare arising from an unexpected event that would prevent the parent or usual caregiver from providing care. Some examples are the sudden illness of a parent or a sudden deployment that does not allow the family sufficient time to implement their childcare plan.

Purpose
 
  • To help CF families meet unexpected childcare needs that are a direct result of their CF duty requirements.
  • To enhance and support Family Care Plan (FCP).
  • To support CF families during short-term crises until they are able to make longer-term child care arrangements.



Guidelines

  • ECC is available to CF families at all times, day or night.
  • Emergencies do not include recurring events during the course of a year.
  • Emergency situations are expected to be resolved within a 24 to 72 hour period.

If your FCP falls through, C/MFRC is authorized to fund up to 72 continuous hours of emergency childcare in certain circumstances.
