Assembly Bill 2150 (Santiago) – Child Care Assistance

CWLC supports AB 2150, introduced by Senator Santiago, which would provide protections for families eligible for child care assistance. AB 2150 would enact several measures that would protect these families. One would guarantee eligibility for child care for 12 months upon receiving a child care subsidy. Another would eliminate required interim reporting during the 12 month-eligibility period unless the family income exceeds the eligibility level or the initial certification is under seeking employment, in which case the family must report at 6 months. AB 2150 also will establish a graduated phase out that allows for allows for moderate wage growth without the sudden withdrawal of support that can undermine a family’s pathway to financial stability.
