Alternative Rate Methodology for Colorado Child Care Assistance Program Reimbursement Rates
The Colorado Department of Early Childhood, established in July 2022, provides a broad range of programs and services to young children, their families, and early childhood professionals. The Department oversees the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP), which helps families that are homeless, searching for work, attending school, or working to find low-income child care assistance.
Brodsky Research is currently establishing and implementing an alternative rate methodology and formula for CCCAP reimbursement rates. Brodsky Research is also conducting a cost analysis to provide information on the cost of care, rather than the price of care, and to identify gaps between the cost of care and subsidy rates.
