Fiscal Detail and Notes
The Department of Health and Human Services will require a Federal Block Grant Fund allocation of $88,000 in fiscal year 2017-18 to contract with a 3rd party to conduct a study to assess the availability of child care in the State, to engage in cost modeling to determine the cost of child care and to develop a system to support child care providers and parents.

Any additional costs to the Department of Health and Human Services to restore consistent scheduled meetings of the Child Care Advisory Council are expected to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
