MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) β€” The deadline is approaching for Alabama daycares that receive subsidy payments to get licensed.

Alabama’s Department of Human Resources said Tuesday that 69 centers receiving the subsidies have yet to submit their application for licensure. That could put some parents in a bind if the center they use has not taken action.

A 2018 state law requires centers to get licensed by Aug. 1 to continue receiving the payments that help low and moderate-income families pay for childcare.

The Department of Human Resources spokesman Barry Spear said the department will help parents find a new center if needed.

Here is a list of daycare centers in Madison County currently on the subsidy program that have not yet applied for a license:

  • Eagles’ Nest Ministries Church
  • Fellowship of Faith Church
  • Hope Community Church
  • Latham United Methodist Church
  • St. Mark Baptist Church
  • The True Word of God Deliverance
  • Universal Life Church

A letter is being sent to parents in the program telling them that they will need to find a new center if their current one doesn’t become licensed by Aug. 1.
