Since there are @ 45,000 licensed slots and about $47M to hand out, couldn't we start with folks getting (and counting on) @ $1,000/full time child. Then, if not all programs apply, folks who already got funds could get a new bump based on the amount remaining. That way, you won't overspend AND, just as importantly, won't underspend.

39:48
HUGE delays in fingerprinting...we have had to look at locations over an hour away. Does LIVE SCAN at any location fulfill our purpose?
S. Tremblay
41:52
Is there a way to set up debit pay or accounts to pay for fingerprints. It would be extremely helpful and cut down on turn around times.
Lindsey Roy
42:04
Is the violation for starting before fingerprinting now? Or September?
Lindsey Roy
43:17
It's not possible to wait for a fingerprinting appointment 2-3 weeks out. When I have a qualified staff ready to start, I need them ASAP.
Jax, Saplings
43:52
Why do staff need to have fingerprints done again if they haven't changed locations? It's not like their fingerprints have changed. If they're digital, couldn't they be saved in a system and run annually?
Lyn Schmucker
44:07
We have had inked prints returned 3 times before they were accepted
Anne Grassie
44:12
our PD wont do anyone that doesnt live in our city
Lindsey Roy
44:22
With all this running around -- who is watching our programs?
Lyn Schmucker
44:57
The Twin Mountain station is only open two days per month which is an issue here in Coos.
Natalie D'Angelo
45:29
Does the employee need to be the one to deliver the paperwork to Concord? Or can an admin?
Tina Summers, PIV
45:34
Can you spell those steps out again?
Judy
46:00
our town charges for finger printing if the teacher doesn’t live in New London.
lynn
46:23
The portal is working really well. Not all station have live scan and then there are extra charges.
Melissa Clement
46:28
Right now, we have the same requirements we had before the emergency order due to covid. Staff are required to have their fingerprint appointment prior to working.
Lyn Schmucker
46:57
Not sure but the issue is if we hire and they can’t get in for three weeks
Lindsey Roy
47:09
It is not possible to do that. Centers are going to take the violation for fingerprinting if this is not resolved.
Amy Brooks- ECEA
47:18
maybe 10 to 2o depending out if their are license renewals...also Twin is 1.5 hours one way from northern Coos
Laura Elliott Johnson
47:30
I agree with if we have not changed locations why so we need to physically finger printed again. Cant they just be re-run?
Kitty Larochelle
47:52
Fingerprinting is ongoing for those expiring. Manchester is so booked we had to consider driving 1.5-2 to a destination
Liz Giza
48:45
Yes, the only available location on the portal seems to be Tamworth, which is two hours away for my staff.
Amy Brooks- ECEA
48:54
A monthly trip to Lancaster would take a ton of pressure off
BethSmarse - ConcordEarlyEnrichmentCenter
49:14
I love the idea of having a day long event!
Danielle Belliveau
49:23
Love that idea
Meryl Kiddie Konnection
49:30
If we are fortunate enough to hire someone we need them to start practically the next day!! we need to go back to allowing them to start working with supervision
Natalie D'Angelo
49:38
Great idea!
Amy Brooks- ECEA
50:13
Katie can you questions the ink prints more111
S. Tremblay
50:17
I think with the staffing so hard weekends would be a huge help. Then we aren't pulling staff out of the classroom
Judy
50:20
It says on the form hat ink prints are no longer accepted
Ann McNamara
50:31
Tell us where to go in Concord please. It is worth the drive.
Lyn Schmucker
51:00
So if we drive the paperwork to concord how long before we have results?
Laura Elliott Johnson
51:10
Thank you for the clarification Jackie
Tricia Patten~ BGCCNH
51:11
live scan at local pd's are often limited to residents of the town...and some charge extra fees. How do we partner with them to prioritize child care?
Kitty Larochelle
51:27
we were quoted $30 for ink
Judy
51:29
ours is $20.00 for non residents
S. Tremblay
51:29
I was under the impression that ink prints are not acceptable that they have to be Live Scan
Ann McNamara
51:54
Can we get a post of what we need to complete this expedited process?
BethSmarse - ConcordEarlyEnrichmentCenter
52:55
For us, the hard part is paying for it online. I was under the impression we had to enter a payment when we make the appointment. Our center covers the cost but we are old school and do everything by check...
lynn
53:22
The mobile unit is a super idea! If it went to different areas on different days and we had a schedule we could send individuals to it.
Laura Clark, M.Ed.
53:23
How often are the ink prints poor quality that can’t be used?
S. Tremblay
54:02
Can we get a list of live scan sites
Melissa Gray
54:29
Could we get a list of local pd's that have live scan machines?? That would be helpful!!
Lyn Schmucker
54:30
It is my understanding that PD lives can will only do the residents of their community
Jax, Saplings
55:29
I had an employee get ink prints rejected two years ago and had to pay twice for fingerprints.
Liz Giza
56:09
So, if we get live scan prints done at the local PD, do we mail them in as we used to?
Judy
57:07
maybe the dept of Safety could ask for help from the local police depts to waive the fee for digital prints for non residents as we are coming out of the covid pandemic and have an unusually high number of people needing fingerprinting
Natalie D'Angelo
57:39
Could we get a list of local PD's with a live scan machine?
Amy Brooks- ECEA
58:03
This is HUGE and needs to be clarified. This would help the north country in a BIG way!
Tina Summers, PIV
58:38
Thank you for your help with this!!
Danielle Belliveau
59:09
Can Melissa clarify: We only have to have the fingerprinting appointment completed NOT the results back (as was pre-covid) correct?
lynn
59:32
Thank you all for taking the time to help us work through this situation. It will absolutely help us to get employees in quickly.
Traci Pare
59:39
Thank you for all your help!!
Jen Briggs
59:40
Kingston can do livescan but they only allow residents and businesses in their town. It's literally next door and not accessible to us.
Danielle Belliveau
01:00:17
Thank you Melissa!
Jax, Saplings
01:01:24
If someone hasn't changed locations, do they really need prints done again? Not doing renewals may lessen up the burden a bit?
Lyn Schmucker
01:01:39
Can you please share the federal rule? From what I read they can work supervised if printed.
Marianne Barter
01:04:19
Having a couple more months to figure this out is HUGE.
Marianne Barter
01:05:00
Thank you Deb- what a great use of funds!
S. Tremblay
01:05:24
That would be a GREAT use of funds!
Anne Grassie
01:05:58
That would be a great way to stablize the field and use of ARPA funds.
Tina Summers, PIV
01:06:16
August/September is busy because school-year centers are getting ready to open again, and might have new hires.
Tricia Patten~ BGCCNH
01:07:07
Some of the local PD's have made exceptions with a phone call and begging that they allow employees of a child care program IN THEIR TOWN as long as I contacted them directly and scheduled it with them for my employees.
lynn
01:07:08
Great Idea and use of funds!
White
01:07:19
I tried to go to our town and they do not have live scans. Said Dover PD maybe could. I ended up going to Manchester. Ink cards would be great if they would work.
Amy Brooks- ECEA
01:07:56
Ink would help tremendously!
Amy Brooks- ECEA
01:08:09
Thank yoU!!
Marianne Barter
01:08:32
I really appreciate the Deputy Commissioner's help in this matter! This is great problem solving!
Danielle Belliveau
01:09:05
A huge thanks to the commissioner!
Sarah Henry
01:09:16
Students in undergrad programs get their fingerprinting done too.
lynn
01:09:46
Thank You Deputy Commissioner

Cellissa Hoyt, Early Learning NH
01:15:24
The application asks for an estimate of how the award will be used. Can programs change how they actually allocate the award based on how much they get?
Melissa Clement
01:21:05
755 Licensed programs - 124 Family Based, 631 Center Based

ivan
01:29:19
Are we submitting waivers through the portal now?
Tricia Patten~ BGCCNH
01:31:13
I am not seeing any of my programs yet. Still waiting for support, have identified several gaps and each time they solve it, I discover something else that is not working...
sandy
01:31:28
Are re-licensing packets being sent out still by mail or finding them on the portal?
Sally Wood
01:31:33
Yes, I can see it and click on it.
Laura Clark, M.Ed.
01:31:36
We do have a licensing tile
ivan
01:31:42
Ok, I don’t think it is available yet. Just was wondering if we should submit waiver through our local coordinator or through NH Connections. Thanks.
Laura Elliott Johnson
01:31:48
I have it
Laura Clark, M.Ed.
01:31:56
Minimal things that can be done with it. Basically just see how many days until renewal.
S. Tremblay
01:31:56
yes on the licensing portal
Danielle Belliveau
01:32:05
I can access a licensing tile
Suelaine
01:32:45

Debra Nelson
01:33:07
Tricia, please reach out for technical support to make sure you can access what you need to access and have them stay on with you until you can see that the issue has been fixed.
Sally Wood
01:33:18
I don't see a waiver option. It looks like I can start a new application, perhaps for my upcoming renewal.
cblanchette
01:33:43
I just mailed my relicensing package today! Is that okay?
Tricia Patten~ BGCCNH
