Guidance

Report the total monthly dollar amount (to the nearest dollar) that the family receiving assistance must pay for child care services for the month being reported, using leading zeros as necessary. If co-pay is assigned by the state on a per-child basis, this element must be the sum of all the co-payments.

Note that a zero is used for a specific reason – zero co-payment; if Element #7 is “unknown/not reported” do not use zero fill, use a blank or space.
