Statutory Authority C.R.S.: 26-1-107, 26-1-109, 26-1-111, 26-2-301, 26-2-302
Applicable Federal Provisions 7 CFR Subtitle B, Chapter II, Subchapter C, §271.4, 7 CFR Subtitle B, Chapter II, Subchapter C, §273, 7 USC § 51
Description of Subjects/Issues These changes are being proposed to simplify the Food Assistance rules by removing duplicative sections, redundancies and to meet one of the Governor’s Wildly Important Goals. These updates streamline the process for clients to reestablish eligibility when they are discontinued during their SNAP certification period, incorporate the usage of person first language of “person with disabilities” instead of the term “disabled”, and reduce timeframes related to the SNAP hearings process. These changes will eliminate the need for SNAP recipients to reapply for SNAP benefits when discontinued and they have reestablished eligibility, allow administrators of the program to provide more timely and accurate of eligibility determinations, and hold SNAP hearings to more stringent timeframes. There are no anticipated adverse impacts for these changes.

Comments CDHS holds two public hearings, an initial and final, for each proposed rule packet. The initial hearing allows the public an opportunity to submit written data, views, or arguments and to testify for or against the proposed rules. The Board does not vote on the proposed rule at the initial hearing, but asks CDHS to consider all public comment and discussion and, if needed, submit revisions to the proposed rule. The final hearing, usually the month following the initial hearing, allows the same opportunity for public comment, after which the Board votes on final adoption of the proposed rule. Please visit CDHS State Board website for meeting dates. https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdhs-boards-committees-collaboration/state-board-human-services
