Later today, Tuesday May 26th, the Joint Finance Committee is scheduled to discuss portions of the proposed budget for the Department of Children and Families. Beginning at 1pm, the committee will tackle items like: Milwaukee Child Welfare; State Foster Care, Adoption Assistance, and Subsidized Guardianship; and the Community Services Block Grant. You can view the entire list of topics here and watch the meeting live on the Wisconsin Eye website.
Child care topics (Wisconsin Shares, quality rating system, R.E.W.A.R.D. ™ WISCONSIN, T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® WISCONSIN, etc.) do not appear to be on today’s agenda but we will update our blog when they are scheduled to be discussed.
