Provider TIER 1 Eligibility
If you are a TIER 2 provider and think that you might qualify as a TIER 1 provider based on the new family income guidlines, then call our office and we will send you an application and help you determine whether or not you will qualify. Remember, since you are self-employed your NET income (after deductions) counts not your GROSS.
Day Care Child TIER 1 Eligibility
If you are a TIER 2 provider you have an option as to whether or not you wish to income qualify any, all or none of your day care children. If individual day care children qualify based on the new family income guidelines, then you can be paid at the higher rate for that child's meal. For more information about qualifying individual day care children, call our office.
