Definitions and Disclaimers

Served: As of January 1, 2018, the definition of “served” is any family or child that has a transaction (i.e., EBT payment for child care) within a given month. Statewide family and child counts are unduplicated in the event a parent changes residency between Milwaukee and balance of state.

Issuances: As of January 1, 2022, the issuance amount totals the transaction amounts paid to child care providers.

Copayment / Parent Share: DCF 201.02(7m) (7m) “ Copayment” means an amount that is calculated by the department's automation system based on s. DCF 201.08 (1) (a) and (2) (bm) that reduces the amount of a parent's subsidy payment. DCF 201.02 Note: See the definition of “parent's share” in s. DCF 201.02 (17e). Parents are required to pay the difference between what the child care provider charges for care and what Wisconsin Shares covers. This is considered the “Parent Share.”

YoungStar Quality Adjustment

Effective January 1, 2022, the YoungStar Quality Adjustment processed changed. The YoungStar Quality Adjustments process has transitioned and is now paid through the Child Care Counts Payment Program. The “Issuances” definition included above has been updated and will no longer include the YoungStar Quality Adjustment.

For additional details about the change in YoungStar Quality Adjustments visit the YoungStar website and the Child Care Counts: Stabilization Payment Program webpage under the “How Payments are Determined” section. For data regarding Child Care Counts awards visit the Child Care Counts Payments Data webpage.

Wisconsin Shares Rate Increase

Effective January 1, 2022, the maximum rates that are used to determine monthly Wisconsin Shares subsidy benefit amounts increased to assist families with the cost of child care.
