AA Financial Assistance Eligibility and Amount
NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE
DAR File No.: 29975
Filed: 05/25/2007, 04:50
Received by: NL
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The purpose of this amendment is to reflect policy on counting assets.
Summary of the rule or change:
In a separate proposed amendment, the Department is making exempt all motorized vehicles for Family Employment Program (FEP) clients. Since the adoption assistance (AA) rules follow the FEP rules, the $8,000 limit will still apply to AA. The Department intends to make the vehicle exemption the same for all programs but needs time to change policy, train staff, and evaluate the impact. (DAR NOTE: The proposed amendment to the FEP rule is to Section R986-200-231 under DAR No. 29974 in this issue, June 15, 2007, of the Bulletin.)
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
Section 35A-1-104 and Subsection 35A-1-104(4)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There are no anticipated costs of savings to the state budget as these proposed changes are nonsubstantive in nature and will not affect current funding levels.
These changes are nonsubstantive in nature and the program is state funded so there will be no costs or savings to local government.
There are no costs or savings to any other persons as there are no fees associated with this program and this is a nonsubstantive change.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
There are no costs or savings to any affected persons as there are no fees associated with this program. This is a nonsubstantive change as the AA program is not changing, only FEP is changing.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
There are no compliance costs associated with this change. There are no fees associated with this change. There will be no cost to anyone to comply with these changes. There will be no fiscal impact on any business. Kristen Cox, Executive Director
