Are we not able to request tuition from the State through this Stabilization Program to cover our regularly enrolled school agers who are not attending at this time? We still have to pay our regular staff who care for our school agers. It says the program is for infants through Preschool? Thank you.

Can we claim the incentives for 3/16-4/6 for the essential worker children if one parent was working from home?
KarenBB

CIS Coordinators by AHS District
Trisha Scharf
33:05
In the beginning, only one parent needed to be essential to qualify for essential child care. It appears that to receive the essential care we need to submit the parent form which has different criteria for qualification for essential care. So how do we get paid for providing care when only one person was essential?
KarenBB

https://dcf.vermont.gov/partners/cis
Judy Bergeron
33:54
I too have heard ACT 166 payments may end 4/13 - how is this possible as it would go against the Governor's direct orders 7.d. that "the state will continue to provide current levels of tuition payments"
Jean Bourn
34:01
I have a question about a family with both parents are essential workers one works during the day and one at overnights, the parent that is at home has to get sleep o be ready for the next day, can they both still be eligible for childcare for the child?
Ingrid Reade
34:03
Ingrid Reade, Early Education Coordinator, CCSU Danville
Sonja Raymond
34:15
We have some public school teacher who are required to do 6-7 hours a day of teaching to their students and while they are on list of essential, they are required to be working from home, yet we are told we can not take their children if parents are working from home. Is there an exception to that for any profession especially public school teachers?

Elaine
36:41
How do families complete the family EP form when they were working out of the home up to April 8 and care was provided up to that date?
Andrea Sambrook
37:30
Has CDD taken any legal advice about the general liability for centers who are open to provide emergency care for Essential Persons?
Rebecca Bishop
37:45
Rebecca Bishop, Bennington County Head Start-Early Head Start
Lori
37:55
If we are providing care (holding a space) for a child of an essential person and the child was sick for the week, will we still get the $125 incentive pay for that child, as we were staffed for all of the children, but that one child did not attend any of his five scheduled days?
Elaine
37:56
Or how do we differentiate the change in status of EP family working out of the home?
jenn
39:02
Do we have to submit the same essential family forms each week even if the same kids attend each week, or parents have previously submitted this in prior invoices
Stephanie
39:02
The Vermont Emergency Mangament website states that essential families working from home are still eligible for care-it is on their website. How do I handle this with families?
Michelle Parson
39:16
if an invoice was already submitted for the first 2 weeks, how do we ask for an adjustment for our afterschool children?
Andrea Sambrook
39:18
Can families choose to reduce hours down to 10 so that they can still have access to Act 166 and remote early learning activities from their center, and the center claim for the loss of the remaining hours on the stabilization program?
Vicky Senni
40:15
How much money is in the stabilization fund? Is there a risk that it will run out during this closure?
Jean Bourn
40:28
Do we just use these two new invoice ways going forward and not use bright futures to invoice?
Alyson Grzyb
40:38
ditto Andrea Sambrook’s question. It is not easy to unenroll a child from act 166 (at least not in our district) and we don’t want to unenroll anyone from pre-k because we want them to continue to be educated even if it remotely. However, some of these parents cannot pay the remainder of their tuition.
Jean Bourn
41:39
Is there a place to get a copy of these documents?
Nancy DeCoster
42:04
Can centers utilize the Stabilization funding as well as some of the new federal loan programs under the Small Business Association?

Amanda
42:30
If children are unenrolled will payments be made until governors order ends or just for the billing period?
suzanna.bomoseen@gmail.com
42:40
Ditto Nancy DeCoster
Judy Bergeron
42:45
It shows here on your powerpoint that essential care payment for birth- preschool will begin 4/5 - what if care was provided beginning 3/18??
Dave
43:12
The idea of reducing hours during the closure rather than unenrolling seems to makes sense. Problems with doing it that way?
Trisha Scharf
43:38
How can we invoice now for the weeks of 3/16 and 3/23? The new invoice only goes forward.
Christina Goodwin
43:58
What happens if a program who is participating in the Stabilization has Staff who wish to use the FFCRA? Parts of the FFCRA mean that staff are only paid 2/3 of their pay. Would programs then have to pay the other 1/3 to ensure that all staff are getting their regular pay?
Andrea Sambrook
44:32
If the closure period extends into the summer such that summer camps/or child care remains closed, will the stabilization funds cover school age children for summer camp?
kharris
44:50
Ditto Andrea! About Summer
Liz Shayne
45:00
Liz from Schoolhouse here - is there a deadline for submitting invoices for the two week period?
sherihill
45:04
We are told to invoice part 1 on the old invoice now the new invoice shows an overlap of the final week of part 1 and includes the first week of part 2, if we already invoiced 1 week how do we proceed. thanks
Elaine
45:26
Ditto Liz. And if there is a deadline, what is it?
Roberta Torrens
46:02
Do we still need to ask parents to pay 100% after 4/5 or just shift all of our families to the 50% maximum for families.
Dora Levinson
46:17
These questions will be captured. You can also submit them at https://bit.ly/AskBBFVermont
Liz Shayne

Will families have to provide any information to “prove” hardship due to the pandemic?
dawna
48:20

kharris
48:25
Can families not on subsidy already apply for subsidy?
Lori
49:25
Since the criteria for "Essential Employees" has evolved since the initial closure, is there another form that will be coming out for families who qualified initially, but don't qualify as of yesterday's form?
Christina Nelson
50:03
Are school age children receiving subsidy going to continue being paid through subsidy?
Molly
50:53
Are we supposed to be "marketing" our openings or are we just to fill open spots with any future requests ?
kristenmartin
52:06
What about Foster parents who are not Essential Workers? Or who already work from home?
Christina Goodwin
52:20
In the FAQ #24 says "Families who are able and willing to are encouraged to cover the full cost of their tuition.On the invoice indicate that this child’s tuition is fully covered by the parent."
jenn
52:57
if a child generally receives subsidy as a school ager, but they are an essential family and are attending full time, who do we bill? If we get money from subsidy can we bill through the essential care invoice for any remainder not paid and the $125
Brenda Metzler
52:59
The dilemma with "working from home" for some essentials is that their contracts (for example, a DCF social worker) do not allow for children to be present while they're working.
Emily Pryer
53:01
Some programs in the state are choosing to provide care for ALL families even those that are not essential. Is there a consequence if the licensed program does not follow the governors order?
Jean Bourn
54:07
how do we get the essential forms to cdd?
Nikita Lenahan
54:19
great question emily
Jenne Morton
54:26
Melissa, sometimes your voice fades in and out.
lrapp
54:42
So what about the parents who might not meet the newly detailed criteria for Essential worker, will child cares not receive $ for them attending prior to these new definitions?
Joanne
55:05
If a family has already paid us, but is having difficulty paying and had to hire a "babysitter" how can we alleviate that burden and go for some relief by applying for this?
Julie
56:56
To add to Christina's question about FAQ #24, shouldn't we therefore charge families 100% and then work with them to determine their best options?
Jenne Morton
57:50
Sound much better, thanks.
dlangsto
58:42
does full tution include the Act 166 hours/cost
Ruth Brisson
58:44
If we are required to unenroll children, and we do not have current waitlists to enroll new children, are we able to re-enroll the original children when we reopen?
Michelle Parson
58:57
when did that shift happen?
Alyson Grzyb
59:11
that doesn’t answer the piece about pre-k. we do not want people to unenroll from pre-k, but some of our families cannot continue to pay the remainder of their bill so they would like to unenroll from the hours beyond the 10hrs/wk of prek.
Sherry Carlson
59:27
Just a note: In case your question doesn't get answered during this webinar, I am noticing that some of these questions are answered in the most recent CDD Frequently Asked Questions.
kharris
59:38
What if your program is completely closed, not serving essential families or anyone; do these programs help? Do I use the stabilization program?
Jane
59:49
We are not making certs any longer to cover these children of essential workers.
Sara Dube
01:00:05
What happens to providers that have families that live in NH but go to a VT Daycare? Will these providers not get paid for these children because they are NH Residents?
Chelsea Chase
01:00:38
does full tuition include the ACT 166 hours/cost?
Laura Rounds
01:00:51
Can childcare be provided for essential persons working from home, if the nature of the work does not allow for simultaneous childcare? (Individual 1:1 counseling sessions, teaching virtual synchronous classes, etc.)
Bill Minter
01:01:55
Will Afte Schoool programs be included in the stabilization porgram?
Meg Baker
01:02:39
If a family can't pay the full 50%, but Act 166 is paying something toward their tuition, can the program still ask for 100% of the total tuition that would have been paid?
Melissa Frary
01:02:40
We continue to hear about the stabilization program and paying staff. what if we don’t have staff?
Donna
01:02:40
Donna Leicht. Can Act 166 funds be transferred at this time if a child unenrolled from their old program and enrolled in a new program?
Kelly Hayes
01:02:49
I have a family that does not want to unenroll but the parents are both self employed and out of work. As soon as we can reopen businesses they will need care. I don't want to leave them in the lurches later. Can I keep them on my list? will the state cover 100% ?
Melanie French
01:02:50
Am I understanding... If all our kids are on subsidy, do we use the new forms to bill for the bonus?
kharris
01:03:12
Can a family not on subsidy before the close, apply for subsidy now?
Billie Slade
01:03:27
Came on late-can we include our after schoolers in the stabilization grant if most of our group is toddlers or preschoolers?
Theresa forbes
01:04:24
Theresa Forbes, St. Edwards preschool director , is the stabilization program only for essential person children or for any student?
Sara Dube
01:04:42
What happens to providers that have families that live in NH but go to a VT Daycare? Will these providers not get paid for these children because they are NH Residents?
Judy Bergeron
01:04:52
Can programs use the stabilization program and still take advange of any small business loans?
Dawn Irwin
01:04:59
are there any financial assistance options for schools that don't qualify for the stabilization program or the federal relief package? My program was suppose to open in April and couldn't because of the pandemic. I don't qualify for stabilization and can't collect tuition because we weren't actually open. Additionally, I don't qualify for the federal package because I didn't have bills before February 15th. However, I now have rent and utilities that started in March. Are there any options for schools like mine that fall through this financial assistance gap?
jmyer
01:05:17
can you complete the essential childcare jot form before you send the parent form to CDD?
Andrea Sambrook
01:05:18
FYI: There is some language confusion about the definition of "subsidy" between CDD and AOE. Confusion in PreK coordinators about Stabilization funds = to subsidy, but CCFAP is not stabilization funding.
Cathy
01:05:28
What happens if a child's subsidy expires during the closure and they're not an essential person?
kristenmartin
01:06:09
PPP will cover utilities, loan, healthcare benefits as well

what proof do we need to send in to state for unenrolling? who do we send it to
Danielle Livingston
01:08:04
For the families that chose to unenroll due to a financial struggle, are providers allowed to re enroll them once we are able to reopen? If the daycare has the spot available at that time?
Billie Slade
01:08:29
Any ideas on when checks for the first pay period( March 16-28) will be sent out for the stabilization grant forms filed on March 28th?
cwright
01:08:43
What if staff were furloughed before this stabilization program started? How does that affect our eligibility?
Molly
01:08:52
Do in home childcares need to "market" their openings to their existing waitlist to fill the spots of children that have unenrolled or just have those openings available to give to future people inquiring ?
Allison Lague
01:08:57
If you are getting paid 100% from all families do you need to fill out the stabilization invoice or do you start if you need to utilize the stabilization funding?
Danielle Livingston
01:09:02
Can home providers that do NOT have staff, run programs solo apply for those grants?

It is my understanding that to compute the 1/2 tuition, you first divide your total tuition in half, and then subtract Pre-K funds and subsidy and what is left is the 1/2 parents must pay. Is this correct?

Once children are unenrolled will there be another form that we need to submit to be paid for their spot each week?

The form for 3/18-3/27 for essential workers indicates it will pay the $125 incentive, is the state not paying essential person tuition during that time or who is supposed to cover titution for that time?

If a program elects to use the PPP federal loan, and the closure period extends beyond another 8 weeks, can we then move back to the stabilization funding as the PPP funding is only to be used for 8 weeks after it is granted?

If you are not paying for afterschool staff with stabilization program, except essential, we should not have to keep afterschool staff on payroll correct?????

How do we get answers to questions not answered here, not in FAQ, not getting a reply from Karen LaVallee?

what if a family is from NH and cannot pay

What happens to providers that have families that live in NH but go to a VT Daycare? Will these providers not get paid for these children because they are NH Residents?

I would highly suggest we do separate webinars on specific topics, one for essential worker/childcare, one for stabilization issues,

And thank you to those who are working on this while also working from home, likely with your own children around in many cases. Everyone's support is greatly appreciated. Vermont is Amazing!!"
