CCPO Broadcast: Child Care Assistance Program Discontinuation of Co-Pay Waiver

January 17, 2023

This broadcast was released by the State of Alaska Division of Public Assistance, Child Care Program Office on January 17, 2023.

The Child Care Program Office (CCPO) Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) realized savings because of decreased child care attendance during the pandemic. Accordingly, the CCPO waived family co-payments (co-pays) for the months of October and December 2020, January and February 2021, June through December 2021, and January through December 2022. The final notice of continuation of co-pay waiver was sent to child care families and providers in August of 2022.

Due to recent inquiries, the CCPO is notifying families and child care providers that waiver of co-pays will not be continued beyond the service month of December 2022.  Families are responsible for payment of their CCAP co-pay to their child care provider along with any other child care provider charges not covered by the CCAP.
