   Department of Public Welfare--Subsidized Child Day Care Eligibility; Regulation No. 14-466


   On February 17, 2000, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this regulation from the Department of Public Welfare (Department). This rulemaking amends 55 Pa. Code Chapters 168 and 3040. The authority for this regulation is 62 P.S §§ 201--211, 401--493 and 701--703, and 42 U.S.C.A. §§ 9858--9858q. Notice of proposed rulemaking was omitted for this regulation; it will become effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

   The Department is expanding the opportunity for participation in the subsidized child day care program. It is increasing the initial income limits for a family's eligibility for subsidized child day care from 185 to 200% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. The regulation also decreases certain co-payment levels, reduces income reporting requirements, and expands eligibility provisions for teen parents living in their parents' homes.

   This regulation meets the criteria of the Regulatory Review Act.

Therefore, It Is Ordered That:

   1.  Regulation No. 14-466 from the Department of Public Welfare, as submitted to the Commission on February 17, 2000, is approved; and

   2.  The Commission will transmit a copy of this Order to the Legislative Reference Bureau.
