Child Care Reporting--Reduced Fee

Reduced Fee


The Reduced Fee checkbox (CDD-801B) is used to indicate that the family paid a reduced fee during the month. It allows the agency to enter less than what the required monthly fee would have been for this family because the family paid another agency for child care services during the month, and therefore their family fee was reduced by the amount paid to the other agency.

Where to Find It

Your agency should have a receipt in the family file if the family paid another agency for child care services in the month.

Rules and Guidelines

  • This information is necessary only for families whose fee was reduced by your agency because the family paid another agency for child care services in the month.
  • Do not use the Reduced Fee checkbox if the family paid the full family fee.

FAQs about the Reduced Fee

Question 1

What if we do collect the full family fee from the family? Do we check this box?


No. You do not have to check the box if the family paid the full family fee calculated based on the Family Fee Schedule.
