REIMBURSEMENT TIERING IMPROVES TARGETING BUT DECREASES PARTICIPATION IN THE CHILD AND ADULT CARE FOOD PROGRAM: FOOD ASSISTANCE RESEARCH BRIEF

The Family Child Care Homes Legislative Changes Study found that family child care homes in the Child and Adult Care Food Program serve fewer children but more of the children are from low-income families. Prior to the tiered reimbursement system, which started in 1997, 21 percent of the children served were from low-income families. Post tiering, that number rose to 45 percent.
