Applicable Federal Provisions 7 CFR § 273.7 26-1-111(2)(d)(I), C.R.S. (2016)
Description of Subjects/Issues "Current rules do not align with Federal regulations which create discrepancies with how rules are applied. Clarifications have been made to include homeless customers under the persons physically or mentally unfit for employment exemption. Changes have also been made to update the old term of “WIA” (Workforce Investment Act) to “WIOA” (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). Implementation for the proposed changes will begin October 1, 2017 to align with the Federal Fiscal year while the required State plan is due to FNS August 15, 2017. The goal of these rule changes is to align with Federal regulations while allowing for; greater access to food security for ABAWD’s and non-participants, a decrease in participant to case manager ratio, an increase in employment outcomes for participants, and minimal negative fiscal impacts for counties who choose to operate the program.
