Current Events

  • March 17, 2021 - March 2021 Market Price Survey
    It is once again time for the completion of the Child Care Market Rate Survey. Staff members from the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) at the University of Alaska Anchorage are assisting the Child Care Program Office (CCPO) in asking for information on the rates you charge for child care services and how much it costs you to provide those services. The results of this survey will be used in a confidential manner to make recommendations for payment rates for subsidized child care in Alaska.
    This survey was sent to child care providers by email on March 17, 2021.  Please complete this survey by April 19, 2021. If your facility’s survey response is not submitted in the next two weeks we may contact you by telephone as a follow-up.

    If you have questions about completing the survey or you do not have access to the internet, you are encouraged to contact ISER researcher, Jessica Passini at or (907) 786-5412. If you would like to provide feedback on the market price survey, please send that information to the Child Care Program Office Eligibility and Benefits Team at
