The Texas Workforce Commission approved changes to its subsidized child care program to reinstate work requirements for parents receiving benefits. The change aims to provide improved access to child care to enable families to return to work. The change goes into effect Nov. 1, but most parents on the program will continue to be covered until Nov. 27. TWC will provide a grace period so that parents currently on the program who have already received three or more months of child care following a permanent job loss will continue to receive subsidized child care through Nov. 27.
