The following rates apply to all child care except the adult/teen/child care disregard.

Payment rates differ by county groupings, type of care, and age/attendance status of the child.

NOTE: County groupings for child care are not the same as for TANF Cash Payment Levels.

Use the part-day or full-day approved rate, as appropriate, or the rate actually charged by the provider, whichever is less.

  • For care less than 5 hours in a day, use the part-day or school-age day rate.
  • For care 5 through 12 hours in a day, use the full-day rate.
  • For care provided for more than 12 hours in a day, use the full-day rate for the first 12 hours and:
    • the part-day rate for the remainder for care provided less than 17 hours in a day, or
    • the full-day rate for the remainder of care provided from 17 through 24 hours.

Use the school-age day-rate for centers who watch the child(ren) before or after school.

If the provider charges for transportation to or from the child care site, total costs for child care and transportation cannot exceed the maximum child care rate.
