Check out these links for help with subsidized child care, and if you have any resources to add for your state, feel free to share them! :D

Daycare bills suck. Why not look into a child care subsidy program? Most subsidies provide assistance for parents who are working, going to school, or both. Single mothers and student mothers especially benefit from subsidy programs, which either pay the entire cost of daycare tuition or a large portion. Some of these programs even offer referral services, so that you can make sure your little one is in the best possible daycare. If your state is not listed here, contact your local department of social services and find out if any programs are available in your county. Some states do not have state-wide subsidy programs, but do offer more localized, county and city based programs.
