Child Care Executive Partnership

Employers and agencies that participate in the Child Care Executive Partnership (CCEP) program contribute funds to help reduce the cost of child care for their employees/clients. The employer/agency contributions are matched dollar for dollar through CCEP program funds, dramatically reducing the cost of child care for eligible families. Parents pay only a portion of the cost, based on household income and calculated on a sliding scale.

Eligible families' household income must be 200% of the current Federal Poverty Level or less. (See chart) Funds contributed locally are matched dollar-for-dollar with state and federal funds and distributed according to the Coalition's priorities for eligible working families.
 
 
How does CCEP work?
  • The employer decides how much, on an annual basis (July 1 through June 30), to contribute to the CCEP fund for all potential beneficiaries.
  • The employer informs employees of the availability of this benefit. The parent contacts the ELC to confirm funds are available.
  • The parent makes an appointment with an Early Learning Coalition of Brevard eligibility specialist, submits their approval verification (pay stub or referral), application, and documentation.
If deemed eligible, the family may enroll their child(ren) in the child care program of their choice. The employer will be billed for their portion based on the child(ren)'s attendance, and their contribution will be matched by the CCEP fund.
 
 
How does the employer/agency sign up for CCEP?
  1. Complete the Application and Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) online (follow "apply here” link). (Employers/agencies may choose verification of the parent's approval to participate via pay stub or referral.);
  2. Mail, scan or fax your completed and signed copy MOA to the ELC offices. Upon receipt of your Application and MOA, you will be contacted by the ELC staff.
