CCPU secured critical funding to help stabilize family child care providers in California through supplemental rate payments. The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) has contracted with the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FCCC) to issue and distribute the supplemental rate payments.
Eligibility for monthly payments during the Fiscal Year 2023 from January 2023 – June 2023 is based on meeting the following eligibility criteria:
- Licensed family child care providers who have cared for at least one child receiving state-subsidized child care for three months between March 2022 and August 2022. Providers must have an active license to be eligible.
- Family, friend, and neighbor (i.e., license-exempt) providers who have cared for at least one child receiving state-subsidized child care for the months of June 2022, July 2022, and August 2022. License Exempt providers must be currently providing state-subsidized child care to be eligible.
If you believe you are eligible for the FY23 monthly supplemental rate payments based on the eligibility description but did not receive the email with a personalized link you may not be eligible, or the FCCC may not have a valid email address on file. You may complete the CCPU Eligibility Review Form online at bit.ly/EligibilityReviewForm to inquire if you are eligible. Please allow up to 30 business days to respond to your inquiry.
Monthly payments for January 2023 – June 2023 will be issued in the following amounts:
- Small licensed family child care provider: $875
- Large licensed family child care provider: $1050
- License-exempt child care provider: $150
