Summary

The bill appropriates:
  • $50 million from federal funds from child care
development funds for the purposes of implementing the
child care sustainability grant program;
  • $19 million from the economic recovery and relief cash
fund to emerging and expanding the child care grant

program;
  • $10 million from the economic recovery and relief cash
fund to implement the employer-based child care facility
grant program;
  • $15 million from the economic recovery and relief cash
fund to implement the early child care and education
recruitment and retention grant and scholarship program.
Of the $15 million, $2 million must be dedicated for home
visiting workforce, early childhood mental health
consultants, and early intervention providers, with $1.4
million of the $2 million dedicated for non-educator
workforce scholarships and loan forgiveness, and $600,000
for developing consistent workforce pathways; and
  • One million dollars to create and implement
family-strengthening grant programs from the economic
recovery and relief cash fund.
The bill creates the family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) support
programs, which include an advisory group and a training program. The
family, friend, and neighbor advisory group is created to advise the
department on the needs of FFN providers and to make recommendations
on changes to regulations, policies, funding, and procedures that would
benefit the FFN community. The family, friend, and neighbor training
program is created to allow community-based organizations and nonprofit
organizations that have expertise working with FFN providers to provide
them with information, training, and technical assistance to support best
practices.
Subject to available appropriations, the department of early
childhood shall make existing state programs available to the FFN
community, including, but not limited to, home visitation, early
intervention, early childhood mental health, workforce recruitment and
retention, and family resource center services.
The bill appropriates $4.5 million from the economic recovery and
relief cash fund to implement the FFN support programs.
