Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that notwithstanding any other provision of law or administrative rule to the contrary, beginning in fiscal year 2019, the specified threshold for working families must be no less than 185% of the then-current federal poverty level for each family size. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Human Services)
 There is no fiscal impact to the Department of Human Services. Effective October 1st 2017, the FPL was increased to 185% for eligibility in the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). The Department's opposition is because the legislation sets in statute the income level at the 185% threshold for low-income working families applying for CCAP. By establishing it in law, it restricts the State from decreasing the FPL for eligibility. The FPL is currently set in rule, and rules allow the necessary flexibility to raise and/or lower the FPL in order to be fiscally responsible and comply with any changes in federal law that may impact the Child Care Program.
