   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:
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
