Statutory Authority 26-1-107, C.R.S.; 26-1-109, C.R.S.; 26-1-111, C.R.S.; 26-2-301, C.R.S.; 26-2-302, C.R.S.; 26-2-301.5(2)(a), C.R.S.; Agricultural Act of 2014 (Public Law 113-79)
Description of Subjects/Issues These sections of rule were updated prematurely based on an interim rule issued by the Food and Nutrition Services. Since the interim rule updates that were incorporated into Colorado Food Assistance regulation were not ultimately finalized, rule must be updated to come into compliance with Federal Food Assistance regulations. Currently, residents of Group Living Arrangements (GLA) and Drug and Alcohol (DAA) facilities are receiving a prorated portion of their monthly Food Assistance benefit amounts when they leave the facility. The short and long term impacts of implementing this rule change are that Food Assistance recipients who are leaving a GLA or DAA facility will receive half of their monthly Food Assistance benefits if they leave the facility on or before the 15th of the month. If these individuals leave the facility on the 16th or after, they will not receive any portion of their Food Assistance benefits.

Comments CDHS typically holds 2 public hearings, an initial and final, for each proposed rule. The initial hearing allowing 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. Emergency rules (ER) are adopted immediately, and are permanently adopted at a second hearing, usually the month after the initial hearing.
