The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia offers child car seats at no cost through its Child Safety Seat Program at CHOP. Anyone who cannot afford to buy a child safety seat can be referred to this program by a healthcare provider. To be eligible, you must be currently receiving public assistance and have a green EBT Access card.
How do I get a child safety seat?
You must have a written prescription/referral from a healthcare provider (doctor, nurse, social worker, etc.) along with an EBT Access card and photo identification. The prescription/referral form must state your need for a child safety seat, your child’s name, date of birth, height and weight. If you’re expecting, it must state your need for a child safety seat and expected delivery date.
You can now complete the application online.
Is there a cost to get a child safety seat?
There is no cost for this program. However, a donation is always welcome.
