Child Care Funding Update- January 21, 2014

January 22, 2015 at 5:34 am

Unfortunately, we do not have any new information to share at this point concerning the Child Care Assistance Program budget. The state will pay bills submitted in January in the normal timeframes. Without additional money the state has only federal funds to use for the program beginning in February. This will not cover all the bills. IDHS will pay first in first out and once the monthly federal allocation is spent, they will hold bills until additional federal funds are available in March.

The House of Representatives is scheduled to return January 28th but the Senate is not scheduled to return until February 3rd so that is the earliest they could act on a supplemental for child care. The IDHS budget office is communicating and working with the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget on this very important issue. We continue to tell providers to be prepared for payment delays beginning in Feb.
