HB 14-1022: Aligning Duration of Child Care Assistance with Child Care Authorization Eligibility Notice

On January 8, 2014, Rep. Lois Landgraf and Sen. Linda Newell introduced HB 14-1022 – Concerning Alignment of the Duration of the Child Care Authorization Notice with the Child Care Assistance Eligibility Period for Children Participating in the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.

Early Childhood and School Readiness Legislative Commission

The bill clarifies that, if a child is enrolled in the Colorado child care assistance program, the duration of the child care authorization notice, which authorizes payment of child care costs, is the same as the period for which the child’s family is eligible for child care assistance. However, the state board of human services, by rule, may identify specific circumstances in which the authorization notice term may be less than the full period of eligibility. A county may reduce the number of families served by the child care assistance program if necessary to avoid overspending its child care block grant allocation for a fiscal year. Assigned to the Public Health Care & Human Services Committee.
