BILL SUMMARY for SB16-212



SENATE COMMITTEE ON STATE, VETERANS, & MILITARY AFFAIRS


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Refer Senate Bill 16-212 to the Committee of the W PASS







02:32 PM -- SB16-212



Senator Crowder presented Senate Bill 16-212 to the committee. This bill makes changes to align state law on eligibility for the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program with federal law. Specifically, if an eligible participant's income rises above the level set by the county to deny child care assistance during the twelve-month eligibility period, the county must continue providing the child care subsidy until the next twelve-month redetermination period.



During the subsequent redetermination period, if the participant's income level exceeds the allowable level to qualify for assistance, the county may deny the participant by immediately notifying them that they are no longer eligible. The county must provide no less than 90 days and is encouraged to provide six months of the subsidy while the participant makes other child care arrangements. If the participant's income exceeds the maximum federal eligibility level at any point, no child care assistance is to be provided.
