SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Aging and Disability Services Administration)
Date Adopted: December 24, 2003.
Purpose: The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) will establish a new program for individuals in need of employment/day program services. Under existing rules, employment and day program services were paid as state supplementary payments or through the counties. These rules identify a new program whereby DDD will pay individuals directly with state-only funds and require that these individuals purchase the necessary employment/day program services. When effective, these rules will replace the emergency rules filed as WSR 04-01-144.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 388-825-020, 388-825-055, 388-825-100, 388-825-120, 388-825-205, 388-825-252, 388-825-254, 388-850-035, and 388-850-045.

Other Authority: RCW 71A.10.020, 2001-03 Supplemental Budget ESSB 6387 (chapter 371, Laws of 2002).
Adopted under notice filed as WSR 03-21-156 on October 22, 2003.
Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: The term "community alternatives program (CAP) waiver" was changed to "home and community based services (HCBS) waiver administered by DDD" in WAC 388-825-060, 388-825-205, and 388-825-252. The changes were made because The Community Alternatives Program waiver is expiring and will be replaced with new HCBS waivers.
