Frequently Asked Question

4. How much will the state pay the child care provider?
Last Updated about a month ago

The Department pays a percentage of child care costs up to the allowable state maximum rate. Payments are then made on a sliding fee scale. You may be required to pay a co-payment.

If you are a STEP participant, the Department will pay 100% of child care costs up to the allowable state maximum rate. You may still have a co-payment if the provider charges more than the state maximum rate.
