Proposed rule

Additional Information
Statutory Authority 26-1-107; 26-1-109; 26-1-111; 26-2-301, C.R.S. (2015)
Applicable Federal Provisions Pub. L. 113-79 (Agricultural Act of 2014); 7 U.S.C. Sections 2011-2036; 7 CFR 273.26 - 7 CFR 273.32
Purpose/Objective of Rule The purpose of the proposed rule change is to modify the implementation date of rules that were previously adopted to implement Transitional Food Assistance. The purpose of Transitional Food Assistance was to provide stable food benefits to families that receive Food Assistance and Colorado Works (CW) basic cash assistance, but become ineligible for Colorado Works cash assistance during the middle of the household’s certification period because the family’s income makes them ineligible. Transitional Food Assistance is meant to help meet a family’s nutritional needs for five (5) months as they transition into self-sufficiency. The effective date of the previously adopted rules was February 1, 2016. Due to delays in automated system changes that are necessary to implement the rule, the effective date must be modified to July 1, 2016, which is when the system changes will be completed.
