The Budget Act of 2014, Chapter 25, which was signed into law on June 20, 2014, maintains the current Regional Market Rate ceilings
at the 85th percentile of the 2005 Regional Market Rate Survey and the licensed-exempt child care provider ceilings at 60 percent of
the Family Child Care Home ceilings through December 31, 2014.
Assembly Trailer Bill 1476 (Chapter 663 of the Statutes of 2014), beginning January 1, 2015, requires the California Department of Education to implement ceilings at the
85th percentile of the 2009 Regional Market Rate Survey reduced by 10.11 percent. If a calculated ceiling is less than the ceiling provided
before January 1, 2015, then the ceiling from the 2005 Regional Market Survey will be used. The licensed-exempt child care provider
ceilings will be 60 percent of the Family Child Care Home ceilings.
These new ceilings will be available to the public January 1, 2015.
