4-C and other child care advocates in Kentucky have worked tirelessly towards a rate increase for child care providers and parents across the state.
We are happy to say that effective December 1, 2018, reimbursement rates for providers have increased to 40% of the 2017 Market Rate Survey.
For parents, the income guidelines have increased allowing them to remain on the financial assistance program with income of 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, up from the previous 165%. Furthermore, effective June 28, 2019 the program will allow post-secondary education or training to fulfill the work requirement. While there is still work to be done, we are pleased with the changes and the opportunities that they offer for our families in Kentucky.
