Posted: Updated:

Guam - Public Health Director Art San Agustin says daycare providers can expect to receive payments under the child care development act sooner rather than later. Public Health has come under criticism in recent months by local daycare providers who claim public health lagged on getting out payments under the federal program which provides assistance to pay for daycare to parents who qualify.

"In talking with the Department of Administration folks down there, we are basically looking at making the next batch of checks for child care providers issued by Friday of next Monday of next week," he told KUAM News.

He says $691,000 is the current balance DOA has on hand to pay the daycare providers. He says $672,000 has already been paid out for this year alone. San Agustin replaces Linda Unpingco Denorcey as head of Public Health.

San Agustin served at the director of the Division of Senior Citizens prior to his appointment at the agency.
