June 10, 2024

Join the Child Development Division (CDD) on Thursday, June 20 from 11-11:45 a.m. for a webinar about recent  and upcoming Act 76 changes. Vermont passed Act 76 in June 2023. The law makes major investments in Vermont’s child care system, and mandates policy changes that will impact child care in both early childhood and school-age settings.
The webinar will walk through upcoming changes to the Child Care Financial Assistance Program and briefly touch on other Act 76 status updates. CDD staff will be available to answer questions. Event registration is required. If you cannot attend the event but would like to submit a question, please email

Upcoming changes to the Child Care Financial Assistance Program begin June 30, 2024 and include:

  1. Enrollment-based payments and attendance submission

  2. Expansion of program eligibility by removing qualifying citizenship or immigration status

  3. Increase to state rates for Family Child Care programs

Register online for the webinar.

Visit CDD’s Act 76 webpage for more information about the legislation, including an updated summary and status report and frequently asked questions. A recording of the webinar will be posted after the event.
