Question:

Hi,

Is a income that the government gives for baby siting need to be taken maser of? The whole amount that the government gives goes for the baby sitter.

Answer:

According to R’ Eliyashiv (quoted in B’orach Tzedakah 9-34) that one does not have to maaser government money that one gets if it is used for it’s intended purpose. Over there he was talking about HUD or a rent subsidy, but a babysitting subsidy would have the same halacha.

Best wishes
