Reduced Fee (CDD-801B only)

The Reduced Fee checkbox indicates if a family paid a reduced fee for a given report period and allows an agency to enter an amount less than what the required monthly fee would have been for a family because the family paid another agency for subsidized child care services. Therefore, the family’s family fee was reduced by the amount paid to the other agency.

Where to Find It

If a family paid another agency for subsidized child care services for a given report period, agencies should have a receipt of the payment in the family’s file.

Rules and Guidelines

  • This information is necessary only for families whose fee was reduced by an agency because the family paid another agency for subsidized child care services during the report period
  • Do not use the Reduced Fee checkbox if the family paid the full family fee.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

No, do not mark the checkbox if the family paid the full family fee calculated based on the FFS.
