Provides that the Department of Human Services shall (rather than to the extent resources permit, the Department shall) provide child care services to specified persons. Expands the list of categories of families and children (rather than families) the Department shall cover to include: (i) families that are not recipients of TANF benefits and that need child care assistance to participate in education and training activities; (ii) children engaged in the State's child welfare system; and (iii) homeless children. Provides that beginning in State fiscal year 2017, the specified threshold must be no less than 300% of the then current federal poverty level for each family size (rather than through and including fiscal year 2007, the specified threshold must be no less than 50% of the then current State median income for each family size; and beginning in fiscal year 2008, the specified threshold must be no less than 185% of the then current federal poverty level for each family size).
