The Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services is preparing the Child Care and Development Fund State Plan for 2010-2011.

The plan supports the Child Care Subsidy Program, which provides financial assistance to low-income families, as well as early learning initiatives such as child care provider professional development, child care resource and referral, Kansas Early Head Start, and regulation and licensure of child care facilities.

People also can participate via teleconference from the Lawrence office at 1901 Del.

The draft plan is available to review and download at Comments may be submitted by mail to SRS EES, DSOB, 915 SW Harrison St., Suite 580, Topeka 66612. Mark it to the attention of Sally Paige Kahle.

Comments also may be sent by e-mail to with “CCDF State Plan Comments” in the subject line.

Comments will be accepted through May 25.

A family of four making $56,000 will invariably qualify as "low-income" under our country's new, populist definition of low-income.

all children who qualify for assistance will be required to submit a portion of their bone marrow several times a year.
