Cribs for Kids

Montgomery County Office of Public Health (OPH) has partnered with the National Cribs for Kids program Cribs for Kidssince 2004. The Montgomery County Cribs for Kids program is free for low-income families. Community Development Coordinators provide education to parents on safe sleep for a safe and separate environment for infants under 9 months old. A safe sleep space is one of the most important pieces of baby equipment parents will need when their baby is born. Here are some tips for parents or caregivers to save for a safe sleep space for their infant. 

Program Guidelines For a Family to be considered for a crib

  • All requests must be made through a referring social service agency using the Montgomery County Cribs for Kids referral form. Self-referrals will not be accepted. 
  • Must be a Montgomery County resident
  • One crib per household per lifetime, unless multiple births (twins, etc.)
  • Cribs will be distributed after the birth of the baby
  • The family must meet income eligibility and have no other means of providing a safe and separate sleep space for the infant. 
Due to limited funding and crib availability, please know that each referral made to the Montgomery County Cribs for Kids program is not guaranteed to receive a crib.
