Reimbursement Ceilings for Subsidized Child Care
The Budget Act of 2014, Chapter 25, which was signed into law on June 20, 2014, maintained the current Regional Market Rate ceilings at the 85th percentile of the 2005 Regional Market Rate Survey and the licensed-exempt child care provider ceilings at 60 percent of the Family Child Care Home ceilings through December 31, 2014.
Assembly Trailer Bill 1476 (Chapter 663 of the Statutes of 2014), beginning January 1, 2015, required the California Department of Education to implement ceilings at the 85th percentile of the 2009 Regional Market Rate Survey reduced by 10.11 percent. If a calculated ceiling is less than the ceiling provided before January 1, 2015, then the ceiling from the 2005 Regional Market Survey will be used. The licensed-exempt child care provider ceilings will be 60 percent of the Family Child Care Home ceilings.
Senate Bill 97 (Chapter 11 of the Statutes of 2015), which was signed into law on June 24, 2015, maintains the current Regional Market Rate ceilings through September 30, 2015. Beginning October 1, 2015, per the Budget Act of 2015 the California Department of Education will increase the Regional Market Rate ceilings calculated above by 4.5 percent. The licensed-exempt child care provider ceilings will increase to 65 percent of the new Family Child Care Home ceilings.
Until October 1, 2015, the Regional Market Rate ceilings will only be available to those that can log on to the Child Development Fiscal Services (CDFS) Web site [http://www2.cde.ca.gov/cdfs/logon.aspx]
The new ceilings will be available here to the public on October 1, 2015.
