This presentation will review the various types of child care assistance
available to low-income families, including public assistance related child
care, Transitional Child Care, and subsidies. In addition, participants will
learn how to obtain and interpret child care plans from local social services
districts, become familiar with the inequities in child care administration
across districts, and review possible legal challenges to these disparities. The
session also will cover the due process rights of applicants and recipients of
child care services, the process for obtaining a higher rate for children with
special needs, the treatment of overpayments, and new benefits available to
providers under the recent Executive Order regarding unionization of home based
providers. Many child care providers also are low-income and this session will
address special issues faced by such providers.
