New York State claimed Federal reimbursement for unallowable childcare subsidies paid to New York City


The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program, administered by the Administration for Children and Families, subsidizes childcare expenditures of low-income families and families receiving temporary public assistance. While researching New York State’s childcare subsidy program, we identified two vulnerabilities that placed CCDF subsidies at risk for overpayment. Specifically, we determined that New York State may have claimed Federal reimbursement for childcare subsidy payments made to New York City that did not comply with requirements related to (1) the number of allowable program closure days (e.g., holidays and snow days) and (2) applying families’ contributions toward childcare. Our objective was to determine whether New York State complied with Federal and State requirements when claiming Federal reimbursement for childcare subsidy program payments made to New York City.
