Market Rate 2015 Video

NYS OCFS sets maximum reimbursement rates for child care subsidies every 2 years. The purpose of these rates is to ensure that parents receiving subsidized child care have equal access to child care as parents not receiving subsidies. The video explains the entire process NYS goes through to arrive at the maximum reimbursement rates: from key provisions of federal and state laws, what the child care market rate survey is, how the survey is conducted and analyzed, and how the survey compares with subsidy reimbursement rates.
