The monthly dollar amount the family receiving assistance must pay for child care services for the month being reported (the co-payment assigned by the Lead Agency or its designee).

Greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal to 2000
This field must be less than or equal to Element #9 (Total Monthly Income)
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.
