Air Force Assistance Program Fee Ranges and TFI for School Year 2014-2015

 The Department of Defense (DoD) recently published their Child Development Program fee ranges for School Year 2014-2015. This policy provides the new parent fees and total family income categories for calculating care in military Child Development Centers and School Age Programs. Parent rates for families receiving Air Force fee assistance in Community Based Child Care Programs will be impacted because the parent share of the child care provider rate is based on the DoD rates for similar services. To view the new Air Force fee ranges and TFI categories which will be used to determine fee assistance for School Year 2014-2015, please visit 2014-2015 fee categories and fees.
