Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is planning to amend WAC 388-310-0800 WorkFirst—Support services, 388-310-1000 WorkFirst—Vocational education, 388-310-1050 WorkFirst—Skills enhancement training, 388-310-1700 WorkFirst—Self-employment, 388-310-1800 WorkFirst—Post employment services, and other related rules as may be required.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Planned amendments will correct outdated cross references to working connections and seasonal child care subsidy program rules resulting from the department of early learning (DEL) reorganization into the department of children, youth and families (DCYF). References to chapter 170-290 WAC will be replaced with references to chapter 110-15 WAC, consistent with recodification of these rules under WSR 18-14-078.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: DCYF administers the working connections and seasonal child care subsidy programs. DSHS continues to consult and partner closely with DCYF to serve our mutual customers.
Process for Developing New Rule: The department of social and health services (DSHS) welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, DSHS will file a proposal with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making. A copy of the proposal will be sent to everyone on the mailing list and to anyone who requests a copy.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Olga Walker, P.O. Box 45470, Olympia, WA 98504-5470, phone 360-725-4641, fax 360-725-4904, email email@example.com.
