Description of Subjects/Issues "The proposed rule change aims to prevent a potential federal penalty of $59M for the State of Colorado. Federal law requires the State to meet the Work Participation Rate (WPR), which requires specific work activities for Colorado Works participants. WPR is a process measure which tracks the number of hours individuals spend in specific activities. Individuals either meet the minimum federally required hours or no credit is given towards the rate. Colorado has been unable to meet the Two-Parent federal WPR of 90%. The inability to meet this could potentially result in a $59 million sanction for the State of Colorado. The proposed rule change allows the Two-Parent Colorado Works households to be removed from the WPR by changing the funding source while still having the same eligibility requirements. "
