Want Better Child Care Reimbursements? Then Speak Up on Cost of Care!

Want to be Reimbursed for Your Real Child Care Costs?

Join in the New NYS Cost of Care Study


We are grateful to the Hochul administration, the state legislature and NYS OCFS for raising the child care subsidy market rates this year. However, the increases were based on a market rate survey of child care fees charged, not real costs. And there is often a very big difference!

The best way to get the needed reimbursement rates is to collect actual cost of care info AND consider the compensation needed to attract and retain critically important child care professionals.

Such a study is now underway, conducted by Prenatal to Five Fiscal Strategies, but it will only be useful if programs and providers from across the state participate.

I canot urge you strongly enough to attend one of the provider input sessions starting November 15th through December 4th - weekdays, weekends, daytime, and evening sessions available.
