PENNSYLVANIA CHILD CARE ASSOCIATION - Event Information
2022 Market Rate Survey and YOU – PACCA Webinar
Every two years, the federal government requires that states conduct a Market Rate Survey of child care. Information from Market Rate Survey provides OCDEL with important data to compare private pay prices with the Child Care Works reimbursements (base rates). Rather than pulling information from Provider Self-Service as conducted in 2016 and 2019, this year the Market Rate Survey requires child care providers to fill out a survey form.
The webinar topics will include the importance of the Market Rate Survey, the elements of the survey, and how the information may be used. There will be time for questions and discussion. Joining us is the team from Penn State Harrisburg, Institute of State and Regional Affairs who are coordinating the survey collection and evaluation. They will also share the new complementary study they are working on to assess the Cost of Care.
