Estimated hours in training per week + (plus) Requested travel time not to exceed ten (10) hours for full-time service need and five (5) hours for part-time service need.

STEP ONE: Total Revenue as stated on the Statement of Profit and Loss Divided by Minimum Wage STEP TWO: The sum of the above equation Divided by four (4) The equation provides the hours of authorization needed for self-employment. The Intake Agent should then ask the average number of days per week the Applicant or Co-Applicant expects to participate in their activity.

PLEASE NOTE: The Applicant and Co-Applicant are not eligible for travel time.

Utilizing information obtained from the Applicant or Co-Applicant during the authorization interview or the Parent/Applicant Worksheet, including earliest drop-off and latest pick-up times, the Intake Agent should assign children to the appropriate shift or shifts which accommodate their service need(s), including travel time.

Approved shifts are Shift One – 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM Shift Two – 6:00 PM – 6:00 AM Alternate CCDF Eligible Provider shifts may be approved by the Office.

A child who needs care overlapping these shifts shall be assigned to both sifts. For example:

a child who need child care from 3:00 PM – 11:00 PM should be assigned to both shift one and shift two and will be counted in the provider’s capacity for both shifts.

 PROVIDER CHARGES MORE THAN CCDF REIMBURSEMENT RATES

When the CCDF eligible child care provider’s charges are greater than the CCDF Reimbursement Rate, the maximum subsidy will not exceed the established CCDF Reimbursement Rate determined by the CCDF Eligible Provider’s category and the age of the eligible child. In these situations, the Applicant and Co-Applicant must assume responsibility for the additional cost of care also called an “overage”. A CCDF Eligible Provider may be willing to accept a lower rate of reimbursement. This would be an agreement between the CCDF eligible provider and the Applicant or Co-Applicant.

CHILD CARE SUBSIDY MAXIMUM EXCEPTION
