Sen. Zeiger

SB6464 directs the Deptartment of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) to contract with the WA State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to conduct an analysis regarding how to address and mitigate the “cliff effect” in the Working Connections Child Care subsidy program. 

The WSIPP must submit a report by Dec. 1, 2018 that includes an analysis of sliding fee scales, eligibility thresholds, the graduation of the co-pay scale, adding exemptions to the TANF 60 month time-limit in order to mitigate the cliff effect, and administrative improvements and structural changes related to the payment system.
