The purpose of this release is to advise social services districts of the planned emergency filing of revised regulations related to the market rates and the maximum reimbursement for expenditures for all child care services funded under the New York State Child Care Block Grant (NYSCCBG) and Social Services Block Grant (Title XX). These changes will be reflected in Title 18 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR) Section 415.9. The new market rate regulations are being filed as an emergency rule and are effective as of October 1, 2007. The regulations will also be filed as a notice of proposed rule making. Social services districts, as well as the public, will have the opportunity to comment on the proposed rule making before final adoption.
The rates are found in Attachment A. A Local Commissioners Memorandum (LCM) will be issued following the publication of the regulations. There are no other policy changes except for the rates themselves.
