Subject: Changes to the implementation date of Assembly Bill 603 provision regarding notification to providers

To all Executive Directors and Program Administrators of California Alternative Payment Programs (APPs), including California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) Stage 2 (C2AP), CalWORKs Stage 3 (C3AP), Migrant Alternative Payment Program (CMAP), and Family Child Care Home Networks (FCCHN)

Recently, California’s Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 75, adopted as part of the omnibus trailer bill to the Budget Act of 2019–20. Among other things, SB 75 amended Education Code (EC) Section 8227.7, which was added to EC, when the Governor signed Assembly Bill (AB) 603, (Chapter 706, Statutes of 2017). This section of EC, requires APPs, as of July 1, 2019, to provide notice to a child care provider of a change in reimbursement amounts for child care services, a change in the hours of care, rates, or schedules, an increase or decrease in parent fees, or a termination of services, at least 14 calendar days before the effective date of the intended action.

This notice is to inform you that SB 75 has changed the implementation date of this section of EC from July 1, 2019, to July 1, 2020.

Further direction on the implementation of this section of EC will come at a later date.
