For all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2022, this act allows a child-care facility, as defined in the act, to claim a tax credit for up to fifty percent of qualifying expenses incurred by the facility. Qualifying expenses include personnel requirements, including, but not limited to background checks, first aid and CPR training, and safe sleep training; educational certifications and professional development related to child care and running a child-care business; and capital improvement projects needed to open or expand a facility.

Tax credits shall not be transferred, sold, or assigned.

The Department shall not issue more than five million dollars in tax credits per fiscal year.
