Reimbursement Options

Tier I Reimbursements

A Tier I reimbursement rate is paid when:

  • Providers are located within an area of economic need (defined by census tract block group or elementary school district boundaries).
  • Providers do not live in an area meeting the criteria, but are low income themselves.
  • Providers don’t qualify based on where they live or their own income, but can demonstrate the families they serve are low income.


Tier II Reimbursements

A Tier II reimbursement rate is paid when:

  • Providers do not meet the Tier I criteria above and whose daycare children are not low income.
  • Providers do not want to furnish their own income information.
  • Providers do not want to have their child care parents complete an eligibility application or whose parents did not return the application.


Mixed Tier I & II

If eligibility is based on applications from the parents, some providers may receive Tier I reimbursement rates for some children and Tier II rates for others.


Food Program claims are due on the 5th of every month by 5:00 p.m. Late claims are accepted through the 15th of each month for a delayed reimbursement.
