WSR 16-02-110
(Developmental Disabilities Administration)
[Filed January 6, 2016, 8:47 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 388-832-0015 Am I eligible for the IFS program?, 388-832-0085 When there is state funding available to enroll additional clients on the IFS program, how will DDD select from the clients on the IFS program request list?, and other related rules as may be required.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 71A.12.030, 71A.12.120.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The developmental disabilities administration (DDA) intends to amend WAC 388-832-0015 and repeal WAC 388-832-0085 due to the 2014 operating supplemental budget directing DDA to move the state funded individual and family services (IFS) program into a 1915(C) home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver. These changes will reflect that the IFS program is closed to new entrants.
Process for Developing New Rule: 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 Alan McMullen, Developmental Disabilities Administration, P.O. Box 45310, Olympia, WA 98504-5310, phone (360) 725-3524, fax (360) 407-0955, TTY 1-800-833-6388.
