Child Care Executive Partnership
The Child Care Executive Partnership (CCEP) program is an innovative, public/private partnership program that assists employers to meet the needs of a growing segment of their workforce – working parents. Through this program, federal and state funding is “matched” with contributions from local governments, charitable foundations, and participating businesses on a dollar-for-dollar basis to provide child care services to participating families.
Eligibility – Employees of participating CCEP business partners whose household income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. For example, a family of four may currently earn up to $48,600 annually and still be eligible to participate.
The employee contribution is calculated based on a sliding fee scale to the child care provider. The employer contribution to child care provider is 50% of the balance remaining after the employee contribution. Finally, the CCEP Board pays the provider 50% of the balance remaining after employee contribution.
Parents choose the child care provider from more than 200 participating providers in Marion County.
