Ccs in Texas

Do all foster homes in Texas qualify for ccs? One of the reasons that I wanted to limit my ages to 0-3 is the day care thing. thanks.
My Foster Care Journey:

Started classes in fall 2009, didn't finish because both boys I was interested in adopting were placed in adoptive homes. God works in mysterious ways, my dad came to live with me about a year later. At the time I couldn't have handled 2 special needs little boys and rehabbing my dad and starting a business. I was about to start ttc but decided that I am not quite ready to bring a baby into the world but would love to help children and this is the best way that I know how to.

Current placement: Tiny Tim 6 days, 4/17/2013 Goal: Relative Adoption and Stella 6 days 11/25/2013 Goal: RU

1st placement: Honey Bear 19 months, 2/25/2013-3/20/2013 RU with dad and sisters.

2nd placement: Angry Bird 8 years old Rapunzel 6 years old! 3/4/2013-4/2/2013 RU with mom and dad.

Foster kids qualify for childcare subsidy if funds are available and both foster parents work full time. The subsidy will not begin until at least 10-14 days after placement, so if you're needing to use daycare during that time you will have to pay out of pocket. Kids that are school aged do not qualify, so any childcare that is needed after school or during school breaks is also an out of pocket expense.

AS- J and E, placed 8/11 at 21 mo and 5 weeks, respectively. Adopted 12/12.

Previous Placements:
6/08-7/08 First Unofficial Placement....Baby N (4 mo)
5/09-7/09 First Official Placement....Little H (2 yrs) moved to be with Aunt
8/09-4/10....Baby D (8 mo)....adopted by Great Aunt and now with half sister

6/10-3/11...Siblings D (5) and M (3)...moved to therapeutic
6/10....Sibling to D and M: M (4)...moved to therapeutic after 1 week

6/11....Siblings A (4) and J (20 mo)....moved to placement closer to mom
6/11-8/11....Twins A and A (16 mo)....went back to mom...again

You must work full time. There are other ways to get CCMS when you are not a foster family, but as a foster family, you must work full time and be able to prove it if asked.

Also, a child who is level moderate or specialized will not qualify for CCMS.
Mama Pam
Big Sister (22) , Big Brother (19)
Princess (9) , Eeyore (7) , and T-lo (6)
Squishy (8mo boy)

We will always love you and miss you, Sweet Little Monkey (3)
