Low-Income Child Care Assistance




Table of Contents


Each family receiving Low-Income 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 fee.


A parent whose co-pay fees go unpaid for more than two weeks may be terminated from Low-Income Child Care. A Low-Income parent who becomes eligible for FF and then later becomes TCC eligible will not qualify without proof of payment or of a repayment plan acceptable to the original provider to whom they were delinquent.
