(a) The grantee shall use the family income and contribution schedule prepared by the department to determine the amount the family must contribute toward the cost of child care based on family size and income level. Family income and family contribution increments contained in the family income and contribution schedule are calculated under 4 AAC 65.281.
(b) At least once every two years, the department will review and revise the family income and contribution schedule based on one or more of the following:
(1) implementation experience may demonstrate unintended results or irregularities that require schedule adjustment, including
(A) increases in earned income should result in an increase in disposable income for a family, rather than being entirely consumed by an increased contribution under the schedule;
(B) contributions should not compete with the provision of basic necessities for the participating family, such as reasonable expenses for the provision of food, shelter, or transportation;
(2) the median income level for this state developed by the federal government is adjusted as published in the federal register;
(3) the department has a change in levels of appropriations for the program and needs to re-determine the maximum number of families that may receive child care under the program;
(4) the number of children in care and needing care under the program;
(5) the number of children in care in a family under the program;
(6) other factors that the department determines are necessary to administer a fair and equitable program consistent with the law and available appropriations.
