Description of Subjects/Issues #15-9-1-2: Revisions to the Procedure for Awarding Gambling Addiction Grants
Purpose/Objective of Rule The local government limited gaming impact fund requires the executive director of the department of human services to promulgate rules for awarding grants, from the gambling addiction account, for the purpose of providing gambling addiction counseling services to Colorado residents. Gambling addiction counseling providers who are awarded a gambling addiction grant will provide treatment, including prevention and education, to individuals who are assessed to be problem gamblers as well as others who have been affected by problem gambling. Rules went into effect September 1, 2015, establishing procedures for applying for a grant, the criteria for awarding and prioritizing applications, and other provisions necessary for the administration of the grant application and awards. This proposed change would provide clarity on how behavioral health programs are eligible to receive gambling addiction counseling grants, as intended in statute. The current rules read as though only individual behavioral health professionals are eligible to apply for the counseling grants. This lack of clarify in the rules could deter qualified programs from applying.
