AP contingency funds are intended to aid contractors with unforeseen over-enrollment situations. AP contractors may apply for reimbursement of up to three (3) percent of their contract amount, or for a greater amount subject to the discretion of the CDE based on availability of funds.

  • Reimbursement Ceilings for Subsidized Child Care
    Current Regional Market Rate Ceilings:
    Senate Bill 826 (Chapter 23 of the Statues of 2016), which was signed into law on June 27, 2016, maintains the current Regional Market Rate ceilings through December 31, 2016.

    On January 1, 2017 the new ceilings will be established at the 75th percentile of the 2014 Regional Market Rate survey or at the Regional Market Rate ceilings as they existed prior to December 31, 2016, whichever is higher. Commencing January 1, 2017 the license-exempt child care providers will increase to 70% of the family child care home rate.

    Until December 31, 2016, the new Regional Market Rate ceilings will only be available to those that can log in to the CalWORKs/APP web site.

    The new ceilings will be available to the public on January 1, 2017.
