2019 Child Care Assistance Rate Increased

Iowa Legislature directed DHS to increase the rate tables for all registered and licensed child care providers.  The effective date of the new rates is January 1, 2019.  While the rate table reflects the maximum that can be paid to a provider by the Child Care Assistance (CCA) program, the state cannot be charged more for a child who receives state child care assistance than is charged to families not receiving assistance (“private pay”).

The tables illustrate the 2019 child care provider maximum payment rates for Basic and Special Needs care based on the type of child care provider and the age of the children cared for.

Reminder:  The state rate can only be increased if the rate is equal to or less than your private pay rate.  Should you receive payment for which you are not entitled, you will be asked to re-pay that amount.  If you are eligible for a rate increase, the new CCA Provider Agreement will be returned to you to implement the revised rate.
