FCCMPL 28 (One-Time Pandemic Support Payment: Type A Homes and Type B Homes)
Family Child Care Manual Procedure Letter No. 28
May 27, 2021
TO: All Family Child Care Manual Holders
FROM: Matt Damschroder, Interim Director
SUBJECT: One-Time Pandemic Support Payment: Type A Homes and Type B Homes


In June of 2020, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) began providing pandemic support payment grants to assist with costs associated with the pandemic.  These grants ended in September 2020.  In December 2020, Congress passed the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021. The Act provided Ohio with funding to help support programs with the pandemic.  On May 17, 2021, Governor Mike DeWine signed Senate Bill 109 of the 134th General Assembly allowing for the appropriation of these funds to programs licensed under Chapter 5104. of the Revised Code.  As a result, the following payment framework has been established.


Type A homes and type B homes licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, who are not currently in enforcement, are eligible for this one-time payment. The payments are based on the program’s star rating AND license capacity.  The license capacity is reflected on the license and includes private pay children and children eligible for publicly funded child care. This one-time payment is intended to support providers with program operational expenses related to the impacts of COVID-19.

The payments will be allocated based on the following payment structure:

Family Child Care Payment Structure:  

License Capacity 1 star 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars Unrated
Up to 6 $263 $295 $303 $323 $338 $250
7 - 12 $525 $590 $605 $645 $675 $500


Application, Payment & Reconciliation

There is no process to apply.  All eligible programs will be issued a payment. Processing of payments will begin the week of July 19, 2021. There is no reconciliation process required for this payment.
