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

  Section 1. Section 34-a of the  social  services  law  is  amended  by
adding a new subdivision 9 to read as follows:
  9.  (A)  IN  ORDER  TO  ALLOW FAMILIES TIME TO PROPERLY PLAN FOR THEIR
FINANCIAL NEEDS AND FOR THE SAFETY, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL NEEDS OF  THEIR
CHILDREN, IN THE EVENT THAT A SOCIAL SERVICES DISTRICT PROPOSES TO AMEND
ITS  CONSOLIDATED SERVICES PLAN, SUBMITS AN ANNUAL PLAN UPDATE, OR TAKES
ANY OTHER ACTION THAT WOULD LOWER THE FINANCIAL  ELIGIBILITY  LEVEL  FOR
CHILD  CARE  ASSISTANCE  SO THAT FAMILIES RECEIVING SUBSIDIES WOULD LOSE
ELIGIBILITY THEREFORE, THE LOCAL SOCIAL SERVICES DISTRICT  SHALL  NOTIFY
THE  OFFICE  OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES OF THAT FACT AT LEAST SIXTY
DAYS BEFORE THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE  PROPOSED  CHANGE  IN  ELIGIBILITY
LEVEL.  THE  OFFICE OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES SHALL POST NOTICE OF
THE PROPOSED CHANGE ON THE OFFICE'S WEBSITE WITHIN FIVE DAYS OF  RECEIV-
ING  SAID  NOTICE, AND WITHIN TWENTY DAYS OF RECEIVING SAID NOTICE SHALL

ALL  CERTIFIED  EMPLOYEE ORGANIZATIONS REPRESENTING LICENSED, REGISTERED

NOTICE  MAY BE MADE BY E-MAIL OR REGULAR MAIL IN THE FORM OF A LETTER OR
POSTCARD, AND SHALL INFORM THE RECIPIENT OF THE  DATE  OF  THE  PROPOSED
CHANGE  AND  A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE. THE NOTICE SHALL ALSO
REQUEST THAT CHILD CARE PROVIDERS THAT RECEIVE  THE  NOTICE  IMMEDIATELY
