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.


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
