We haven't discussed this in a while so I thought I'd bring it up again.

If you make less than 50% of the state's median income (50% = $2890 per month),
you can get a state-subsidized voucher to help pay for child care.  Many grad
students will meet the income requirements, and I know that people on this list
have used these vouchers.

The catch is that unless you have a special needs child, the wait list can be
quite long--like a couple of years.  So if you have a baby now & think you
might want child care in a year or two, it's probably a good idea to apply.
