The bill (S-2908) would increase payments to child care providers and revise hourly limits on child care for school-aged children under the subsidized child care assistance program during the 2020-2021 school year.

“Due to the pandemic, the need for child care has never been higher,” said Corrado (R-40). “The demand for care providers within the subsidized assistance program has increased as the COVID pandemic has impacted school schedules and many New Jersey districts have adapted to a hybrid of in-class and remote instruction. Under this bill, providers will be fairly compensated for the increased services they provide.”

The subsidized child care assistance program is administered by the Division of Family Development in the Department of Human Services.

Under the bill, the primary money source to fund the rate increases would be provided with federal dollars allocated pursuant to the Child Care and Development Block Grant of 1990. If additional funds are required, they would be appropriated from the state’s General Fund.
