State subsidized child care payment types: Contracts and vouchers

Due to numerous factors, including the variety in type of child care programs available, reimbursement rates are one of the more complicated components of the subsidized child care system. One of the most straightforward caveats to child care reimbursement is that no child care provider can be reimbursed at a level greater than what they charge for non-subsidized children receiving the same type of care. This is confirmed annually by local Child Care Resource & Referral or Alternative Payment Programs. With that overarching policy in mind, there are two main categories of rate reimbursement: the Standard Reimbursement Rate (SRR) and Regional Market Rates (RMRs). (author abstract)
