Guidance: Enter the one digit code indicating the reason for receiving subsidized child care. If more than one category applies, chose the primary reason. However, if the primary reason for care is "Other", then the second reason for care should be given. "Other" should not be used as an option unless none of the other options apply and should not be used to report missing data.

Except under some unusual circumstances, if Data Element 6 is 1, 3, 6, 8 (involving employment), Data Element 9 (Total Monthly Income for Determining Eligibility) should not be zero, and Data Element 10 (Employment Income, Including Self – Employment) should be 1.

Note that a zero is used for a specific reason; for “unknown/not reported” use a blank or space.
