Beginning October 1, 2013, and until September 30, 2014 the department is conducting a pilot Transitional Child Care program. This pilot will be time-limited and is expected to end on September 30, 2014. Transitional Child Care will allow families currently eligible for child care to continue to receive child care during the period of this pilot after their income exceeds 180% of the federal poverty level (FPL), as long as income remains below 225% FPL. In addition, beginning October 1, 2013, and until January 1, 2015, the Department shall provide child care to Income Eligible/Low-income families with income below one hundred eighty percent (180%) of the federal poverty level who are involved in training, apprenticeship, internship, on-the-job training, work experience, work immersion, or other job readiness/job attachment programs sponsored or funded by the human resource investment council (governor's workforce board) or state agencies that are part of the coordinated program system pursuant to sections 42-102-9 and 42-102-11 of RIGL.
