The CDE, ELCD and Child Development and Nutrition Fiscal Services (CDNFS) office has received questions from contractors about when the Early Learning and Care contracts for 2020-21 will be sent to contractors. The information below pertains specifically to the following CDE contracts: Alternative Payment Program (CAPP), Migrant Child Care (CMIG and CMAP), California State Preschool Program (CSPP), General Child Care (CCTR), Family Child Care Home Education Networks (CFCC), Care for Children with Severe Disabilities (CHAN), and CalWORKs Stages 2 and 3 (C2AP and C3AP).
Agencies holding these CDE contracts can expect to receive fiscal year 2020-21 contracts by June 1. These contracts will not reflect any of the proposed changes in the May Revise. While the changes in the May Revise are proposed changes to the budget, contractors should review what has been proposed and assess their current financial situation to make informed decisions and plan accordingly. Once the final budget is enacted, any changes made in the final budget will be reflected in contract amendments. The CDE will process Budget Act amendments, which will incorporate all changes to funding. Budget Act amendments are typically released in September.
