WCCC Child Support Enforcement

Senate: Funding is reduced based on the assumption that the Department of Early Learning will exercise its rule-making authority under RCW 43.215.135 to require Working Connections Child Care recipients and applicants to seek child support enforcement services from the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Division of Child Support. DSHSmay exempt certain recipients, if there is good cause for the client not to cooperate due to domestic violence. This is estimated to increase household income for participating families.
