Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.
Purpose: This rule change is needed to add "child-related transportation" to the payment chart for the consolidated emergency assistance program (CEAP). The payment chart identifies types of emergent needs and the maximum available dollar amount by assistance unit that is allowed for that need under CEAP. Transportation for a minor, not in foster care, to a home where care will be provided by a family member or approved caretaker is allowed as an emergent need under WAC 388-436-0015 Consolidated emergency assistance program (CEAP). Child-related transportation is currently not identified in the payment chart.
