The objective of this program is to reach out to county employees across the country to ask them to help their fellow county employees in North Dakota and Minnesota so they can return to their homes and communities.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

28.CHILD CARE DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT FUNDS (Tape 7)

Chairman Hanley referred to the Acting County Executive's memorandum on the Department of Social Services (DSS) Board Subcommittee's plan for the Child Care Development Block Grant. This plan will direct the funding of subsidized child care in Virginia. The memorandum indicates that the current proposal by the DSS Board Subcommittee would shift the cost of funding subsidized child care to low income families, localities, and child care providers.

Chairman Hanley noted that the changes proposed by the DSS Board Subcommittee are being done at a time when an additional $30 million of funding is available to Virginia for child care. Fairfax County continues to fall short in meeting the critical demand for safe and affordable child care for the working poor. All available funding is needed in addressing this demand.

If the proposed parent fee increase and lower eligibility are adopted, staff estimates the County would need an additional $6 million to maintain child care to the current number of children at an affordable cost to parents.

Since it appears that the proposed changes will exacerbate the County's current need of child care for low income families, and to convey the Board's concerns with the proposal before the DSS Board Subcommittee finalizes the plan, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to convey to the DSS Board Subcommittee and the General Assembly that the red tape involved in, and the over-regulation of, child care have contributed to the critical status of child care in Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion by directing staff to forward this information to the group which decided how the community funding pool was to be allocated this year, and this was accepted.
