Child Care Benefits
This line code would be used

Reimbursement for the county when child care assistance benefits have been paid
by the county directly to the child care provider on behalf of an eligible Wisconsin
Shares case. Examples include:
- When a child care provider submits their attendance forms in a timely
manner and there are no agency concerns regarding the content of the form
and the agency misses the Friday deadline for provider payment batches at
the state on Saturday.
- When a fair hearing has resulted in back payments owed to a child care
provider and the payments are unable to be processed through CARES.
- Report only Wisconsin Shares child care assistance costs paid directly to a child
care provider. All other costs are prohibited from this line code. Use only if the
county is unable to process the payment through CARES.
- Line code 0854 is not
available to tribes.
