Work requirements return for TWC's subsidized child care programWork requirements return for TWC's subsidized child care programhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=250522020-10-16T05:00:00Z2020-10-16T15:00:00Z

​​​​​AUSTIN – The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) will reinstate work requirements for parents receiving subsidized child care benefits. 

The change goes into effect Nov. 1. How​​ever, parents currently on the program who have already received at least three months of childcare following a permanent job loss will continue to be covered until Nov. 27.

TWC removed the work requirement as part of its COVID-19 response to provide short-term relief and greater stability for child care providers. With more Texas businesses getting back to work, however, the lack of a work requirement makes it more difficult for working families to access those funds. 

Currently, 39,000 Texans are on waiting lists for the program.
