All Child Care Lead Agencies (in NC the Division of Child Development and Early Education) are required as part of receipt of the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) block grant to conduct a statistically valid and reliable market rate survey (MRS) reflecting variations in the price to parents of child care services by geographic area, type of provider, and age of child. This report must be completed no earlier than two (2) years before the date of submission of that lead agency’s three-year State Plan.

As part of North Carolina’s submission of its 2019-2021 CCDF State Block Grant Plan, the 2018 Child Care Market Rate Survey was completed in conjunction with researchers from North Carolina State University. For questions regarding this report please contact Heather Laffler, Assistant Director for Administrative Services, at or 919-527-6516.
