BILL NUMBER:S6553

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation
to directing the council on children and families to establish an
online listing and map of publicly funded or registered afterschool
and school age child care programs

PURPOSE:

This bill ensures the Council on Children and Families develops and
makes available through its website a listing and map of all
recipients of grants awarded or administered by the state for the
purpose of providing afterschool or summer programs, extended learning
time, or community schools, and all registered school age providers
registered by the office of children and family services. The listing
shall include for each grant recipient or provider the recipient or
provider's name, the address at which the program is offered, and the
name and phone number of an individual who is authorized to answer
questions regarding the program.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends section 483-b of the social services law by adding a
new subdivision 6 that requires the Council on Children and Families
to develop and make available through its website a listing and map of
all recipients of grants awarded or administered by the state for the
purpose of providing afterschool or summer programs, extended learning
time, or community schools, and all registered school age providers
registered by the office of children and family services. The listing
shall include each grant recipient or provider's name, the address at
which the program is offered, and the name and phone number of an
individual who is authorized to answer questions regarding the
program. The listing and map shall be updated no less than once every
ninety days to reflect changes. The listing and map shall be updated
within ninety days of any contract with a grant recipient expiring or
being signed. The council may include locations and information for
additional relevant programs as it sees fit.

Section 2 establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

As it stands now, there is no statewide database through which parents
and caregivers can search to identify afterschool, extended learning,
and summer programs for their school age children. This bill will
begin to address this gap in information and services.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE:


This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have
become a law.
