NEW 2016 Basic Rate per week for a Licensed Center in the South Central region at the Full-Time Care level for an Infant Child …..…$297.00 per week

2002 C4K Basic Rate per week for a Licensed Center in the South Central region at the Full-Time Care level for an Infant Child………$209.00 per week

$88.00 multiplied by 4.3 weeks = $378.00

$378.00 is the retroactive payment for that child*
