Working to transform the child welfare system.

SB 6068 extends the 12-month authorizations to all children receiving working connections child care and prohibits children from being deemed ineligible for changes in the family circumstances, such as: a change in family composition, a change in a parent’s or a caregiver’s employment status, a change in a parent’s or a caregiver’s employment status due to health, maternity or paternity leave, or other family leave condition, or a change in a parent’s or a caregiver’s income.  

The bill also strikes existing language that applied the twelve-month authorization for the working connections child care subsidy only if the enrollments in the child care subsidy or working connections child care program were capped, unless a change in circumstances necessitated reauthorization sooner.
