Wisconsin Shares Policy Changes Coming This Fall!

Your Wisconsin Shares childcare subsidy may be increasing. Policy is being changed to comply with federal regulations and improve the family-friendly approaches of the Wisconsin Shares Subsidy program. The new policy starts on October 1, 2023. Starting with your October benefit, your subsidy will change from an hourly amount to a part-time or full-time amount. 

The department will also begin paying limited registration fees. Only parents who have Wisconsin Shares authorizations to the provider are eligible to receive funds to pay provider registration fees. This does not apply to parents who are not receiving Wisconsin Shares. Parents with authorizations will be able to receive funds to pay registration fees for the provider’s price up to $125 twice in a 12-month period.
