Section III: County Co-Payments

Federal policy requires that families receiving child care assistance funded by the federal CCDF share in the cost of child care with the exception of families with income below the State Income Standard. OCFS has established a formula to calculate the amount of the family share of child care costs. First, each social services district selects a co-payment multiplier between 10% and 35%. The co-payment is then determined by multiplying the amount of the family income in excess of the State Income Standard by the district’s chosen co-payment multiplier:

Co-Payment = (Family Income – State Income Standard) x District Co-Payment Multiplier %

The co-payment does not increase with additional children receiving subsidies.

Table 3 shows a family co-payment in each district at selected family income levels and the amount of co-payment as a percentage of family income. It shows that the amount of family co-payment and the co-payment as a percentage of family income increases as family income increases.
