ACL 04-07 – Retroactive Child Care Final Regulations (March 5, 2004)

Remember that lovely bill that eliminated retroactive child care support services Stage One payments for CalWORKs subsidized child care? Well, the final regs are out, with some changes from the emergency regs that went into effect February 2nd. Counties are now “encouraged” to inform families orally of the availability of child care subsidies and required to provide the county’s child care request form upon request. (Bad news is the counties have 10 days, up from five, to process the child care requests.) [Download]
