Funding Terms and Conditions

CDE and CDSS are using the same Funding Terms and Conditions (FTCs) in FY 2021/22 until further notice. Updates to the FTCs may occur upon implementation of legislation transferring program statutes from the Education Code to the Welfare and Institutions Code. All Contractors will be informed of any changes and an updated version will be posted on this page.

The Fiscal Year 2021-22 Funding Terms and Conditions include a new section on the Building A Better Early Care and Education System Act pursuant to Article 19.5 of the Education Code (EDC) [sections 8430-8439.8]. Although EDC section 8436 provides that a certified provider organization may request deductions from the subsidy payments of its provider members, there is no existing process for automatic dues deduction and there is no requirement for contractors to initiate or operationalize dues deduction at this time. The California Department of Social Services will issue guidance if and when dues deduction is required.
