March 17 Update - Subsidy & NC Pre-K Payment Information for March 2020

Thank you for supporting our state and our families by providing vital care and services. DHHS and DCDEE understand that you are worried about the financial impact this event may have on your programs.

To assist child care providers, the Division is making the following policy changes:

1. Child Care Subsidy: For the month of March, all licensed child care centers and family child care homes will receive full subsidy payment for each child receiving Child Care Subsidy Assistance and enrolled in their facility according to each child's plan of care.

2. NC Pre-K: Pre-K programs will be paid in full for the entire month of March, regardless of child attendance or program closure.

DCDEE will assess payment policy options for future months as the need develops.  We encourage you to check online daily for the most up-to-date information.
