Reimbursement Services

The federal government establishes reimbursement rates for meals and snacks annually. Reimbursement rates are based on household income eligibility guidelines. Those individuals in the lowest income categories will provide the daycare with the highest reimbursement level for each eligible meal or snack. Family day care home reimbursement is based on the income of the provider or the socioeconomic level of the neighborhood of the provider or the income levels of the children in care. Approved family day care home sponsoring agencies also receive payment for expenses based on the number of homes they administer in the program.

Pee Dee CAP must ensure that their day care homes are appropriately licensed or approved and maintain accurate records required for breakfast, lunch, supper and morning, afternoon and late night snacks may be reimbursed depending on the type of day care program and the hours of operation.
