Diversion Child Care




Table of Contents


Each family receiving Diversion Child Care assistance is required to pay a portion of their child care costs. The weekly fee amount is based on a sliding income scale and is determined by the size of the family. (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 are unpaid for more than two weeks may be terminated from the Diversion Child Care program.  Once terminated for failure to pay the co-pay fees, a Diversion Child Care parent cannot return to Diversion Child Care without proof of payment or a repayment plan acceptable to the provider.
