Transitional Child Care (TCC)

PARENT CO-PAY FEES

Table of Contents

 

Each family receiving TCC assistance is required to pay a portion of their child care costs. The weekly fee amount is based on a sliding income scale and adjusted according to the size of the family household. (Refer to policies on Determining Family Household Size and Income Eligibility Determination).

 

Refer to the Child Care Provider Contract, Section C.5.c, for provider requirements with respect to collection of co-pay fees.

 

A parent whose co-pay fees go unpaid for more than two weeks may be terminated from TCC. Once terminated for failure to pay the co-pay fees, a TCC parent cannot return to TCC qualification without proof of payment or a repayment plan acceptable to the provider. A TCC parent who returns to FF eligibility and then later again becomes TCC eligible will not qualify without proof of payment or a repayment plan acceptable to the original provider to whom they were delinquent.
