The Division of Child Care would like to share updates to the CCAP Regulation (922 KAR 2:160) as they apply to you and the families that you serve.
Effective 7/1/22, the CCAP income guidelines are increasing from 200% of the Federal Poverty Guideline (FPG) to 85% of the State Median Income (SMI). This change applies to initial applications, case changes, and recertifications.
|Family Size||200% FPG||85% SMI/Monthly|
|Over 8||Add $166 for each|
Effective 8/1/22- Changes to special add-on rates for CCAP.
Licensed and Certified providers will receive:
- $10 per day beyond the maximum rate for nontraditional care for providing child care based on the parent’s schedule between 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily; or Friday, 7 p.m. through Monday, 5 a.m.
- $5 per day beyond the maximum rate if the provider is accredited as outlined in KAR 2:160.
- $5 per day beyond the maximum care rate for providing care for children with special needs as defined in 922 KAR 2:160.
Effective 9/1/22, the 3-month TCC period will increase to 6 months.
Beginning in March 2022, families who lose their CCAP benefits because they exceed the CCAP income guidelines became eligible for Transitional Child Care (TCC)- an extended 3 months of benefits. The provider receives fifty percent (50%) of the lesser amount of the provider subsidized rate or maximum payment rate established in the DCC-300, rounded up to the nearest whole dollar. Providers are sent an updated DCC-94/Notice of Change that outlines the extended eligibility dates and adjusted rates.
Thank you for all you do to support Kentucky’s families and children!
