Indiana to pay more for low-income child care

– Indiana child care providers who care for children from low-income families will get a funding boost.

The Family and Social Services Administration announced Monday that the state will give additional money for the first time in almost seven years to child care providers accepting vouchers from the federal Child Care Development Fund.

Providers who give the best care will get a bigger share of the money beginning in mid-May. Reimbursement rates will depend on where providers rank in the state’s voluntary Paths to Quality system, which grades them on a four-tiered scale.

FSSA says about 41,000 Indiana children from 22,000 families receive child care subsidies from the federal government.
