APU 2014 2/10/2014 3/9/2015 In accordance with Social Services Law § 34-a(9)(a), “in the event that a social services district proposes to amend its consolidated services plan, submits an annual plan update, or takes any other action that would lower the financial eligibility level for child care assistance so that families receiving subsidies would lose eligibility therefore, the local social services district shall notify the office of children and family services of that fact at least sixty days before the effective date of the proposed change in eligibility level.” On January 21, 2015, OCFS received a notice from Washington County Department of Social Services regarding its intent to close child care cases, in accordance with the districts approved Child and Family Services Plan, due to a lack of funding. Case closings for families which are not eligible under a child care guarantee and are not a federally-mandated priority must be based on the lengths of time in receipt of services. According to the district’s plan, cases in Washington County will be closed based on those receiving child care services for the longest time to the shortest time. On February 3, OCFS was informed by Washington County that the cases that had been planned for closure will remain open. The county is in the process of notifying caregivers and child care providers of the change in their decision.
