New York State is divided into fifty-eight local social services districts. The five boroughs of New York City comprise one district. Outside of New York City each district corresponds to one of the fifty-seven counties that make up the remainder of the state. County Departments of Social Services (DSS) provide or administer the full range of publicly funded social services and cash assistance programs. Families whose income meets state guidelines and who meet other criteria, may be able to receive a subsidy to offset some of their child care costs. If you are interested in learning more about the availability of child care subsidies in your county, please contact your DSS office.

Listed below is an alphabetical list by county of the fifty-eight DSS Offices available throughout New York State.
