Wisconsin Shares Child Care Subsidy Policy Manual




2.4 Parent Share

The Wisconsin Shares Child Care Subsidy does not cover the full cost of child care in most cases; the balance is the “parent share.” Parents are responsible for knowing and paying the amount that the child care provider will charge them that is above the Wisconsin Shares subsidy amount. Wisconsin Shares calculates a copayment amount that is based on the family’s income and family size, but this amount is used for subsidy amount calculation and does not reflect the actual out-of-pocket cost to the family.
