example, a single parent, receiving a child care subsidy, with an annual income of $25,755 and two children living in Cattaraugus County would have a co-payment of $72 per month for child care (a 10% district co-payment multiplier). However, if the same family moved across the county line into Erie County (contiguous to Cattaraugus County), the family would then have a co-payment of $250 a month (a 35% district co- payment multiplier).

The legislature requested that OCFS estimate the fiscal impact of establishing a statewide co-payment policy that caps the co-payment at ten percent of family income. In 2008, based on sample data for the period October 2006 through September 2007 and then current district co-payment multipliers, OCFS estimated that implementing such a policy would cost approximately $3 million or, if no additional funding were available, result in a 0.52% reduction (628 children) in the number of children that could be served statewide per month.
