Regulated Subsidy Family Home Child Care Rulemaking
 (Implementing the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014). 
The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 (CCDBG) requires states to develop health and safety requirements for all child care facilities that accept reimbursement through Child Care and Development Fund subsidy payments.
Oregon Revised Statutes 329A.505 authorizes the Office of Child Care to conduct on-site inspections when such inspections are required under federal Law and authorizes the Office of Child Care to require improvements or corrections necessary to bring provider into compliance. The administrative rules establish conditions and standards for compliance.  Due to these new requirements, the Early Learning Council must adopt administrative rules for regulation and monitoring of health and safety standards for programs that have been exempt from licensing. The requirement becomes operative on November 19, 2016. 
In May, the Council held its “first reading” of the Regulated Subsidy Provider proposed administrative rules as submitted by the Child Care and Education Committee (CCEC) ), serving as the Council’s Rules Advisory Committee.  The Council is scheduled to take final action on the rules on June 23, 2016, 9:00am-1:00pm, 3030 SW Moody Ave, Suite 250, Room 250 C&D, Portland, OR 97201.
Click here to view the proposed rules.
The public comment period on the proposed rules for Regulated Subsidy Family Home Providers closes on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 5:00 p.m.
