 AN  ACT to amend the social services law, in relation to the duration of

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

   Section  1. Subdivision 3 of section 410-w of the social services law,

 follows:
   3. A social services district shall guarantee child care assistance to
 families  in  receipt  of public assistance with children under thirteen
 years of age when such child care assistance is necessary for  a  parent
 or  caretaker  relative  to engage in work or participate in work activ-
 ities pursuant to the provisions of title nine-B of article five of this
 chapter. Child care assistance shall continue to be guaranteed for  such
 a  family  for  a period of twelve months OR MAY BE PROVIDED BY A SOCIAL
 SERVICE DISTRICT FOR A PERIOD UP TO TWENTY-FOUR MONTHS, after the  month
 in  which  the family's eligibility for public assistance has terminated
 or ended when such child care is necessary in order to enable the parent
 or caretaker relative to engage in  work,  provided  that  the  family's
 public  assistance has been terminated as a result of an increase in the
 hours of or income  from  employment  or  increased  income  from  child
 support  payments  or  because  the family voluntarily ended assistance;
 that the family received public assistance in at least three of the  six
 months  preceding  the  month  in  which eligibility for such assistance
 terminated or ended or provided that such family has received child care
 assistance under subdivision four of this section; and that the family's
 income does not exceed two hundred percent of the state income standard.
 Such child day care shall recognize the need for continuity of care  for
 the child and a district shall not move a child from an existing provid-
 er unless the participant consents to such move.
   §  2.  Subdivision  3  of section 410-w of the social services law, as
 amended by section 2 of part L of chapter 56 of the  laws  of  2022,  is
 amended to read as follows:
