  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Subdivision 2 of section 410-x of the social services law,
as amended by chapter 416 of the laws of 2000, is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  2.  (a)  A  social  services district may establish priorities for the
families which will be eligible to receive funding;  provided  that  the
priorities  provide that eligible families will receive equitable access
to child care assistance funds to the extent that these funds are avail-
able.
  (b) A social services district shall  set  forth  its  priorities  for
child  care assistance in the district's consolidated services plan. The
commissioner of the office of children and  family  services  shall  not
approve  any  plan  that  does not provide for equitable access to child
care assistance funds.
  (c) A social services  district  shall  be  authorized  to  set  aside
portions  of  its  block  grant  allocation  to serve one or more of its
priority groups and/or to discontinue funding  to  families  with  lower
priorities  in  order to serve families with higher priorities; provided
that the method of disbursement to priority groups provides that  eligi-
ble  families  within  a priority group will receive equitable access to
child care assistance funds to the extent that these  funds  are  avail-
able.
  (d)  NOTWITHSTANDING  ANY  OTHER PROVISION OF LAW TO THE CONTRARY, THE
COMMISSIONER IN ANY SOCIAL SERVICES DISTRICT THAT DOES NOT  HAVE  SUFFI-
CIENT  FUNDING  TO SERVE ALL ELIGIBLE WORKING FAMILIES UNDER TWO HUNDRED
PERCENT OF THE STATE INCOME STANDARD, SHALL OFFER THE TWELVE MONTH  WORK

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
