The Noble County Commissioners have committed $50,000 in 2023 County Economic Development Income Tax (CEDIT) revenue to fund the pilot year of this program. The pilot is important for all of Northeast Indiana, as its success will build a case to support a Tri-Share program in the future that could be funded by the state.

Through this program, child care costs for qualifying families will be split in thirds. One-third of the cost will be paid by the family, immediately cutting their costs by 66%, one-third will be covered through the county contribution, and the final one-third will be paid through a parent’s employer who has opted in to the program.

Details regarding the participation and guidelines for each group can be found at the full Tri-Share Policy document.
