Additional Information

Applicable Federal Provisions Agricultural Act of 2014 (Public Law 113-79)
Purpose/Objective of Rule 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 Colorado Food Assistance regulations must be updated to come into compliance with Federal Food Assistance regulations. Keeping these regulations as they are currently written would open the state to risk of a federal finding for having the interim rule implemented when these rules were not finalized.
