Regulation Authority:

RIGL 40-6

Purpose and Reason:

Proposed revisions have been filed under emergency rule-making guidelines to reflect the 2014 changes in the Federal Poverty Level guidelines. Additional revisions have been made to sections 0850.03.02 - CPD Application for Approval Process; 0850.03.04 - DHS-CCAP Approved Provider Agreement; and, 0805.06.05 - Entry into the Quality Rating and Improvement System for CCAP Approved Providers to clarify the process by which CCAP providers were awarded a One Star, the steps necessary to maintain a One Star, and the requirement of maintaining a minimum of a One Star as a condition of being a CCAP approved provider. These changes became effective April 1, 2014 under emergency-rule making provisions and are being filed under regular rule-making to sustain the changes and provide for pubic comments and engagement. Technical amendments have been made to section 0850.02.04 (D)(3)(c) to clarify that the minimum wage requirement applies for any parent with earned income and to remove language that implied a single parent household needs to have earned income. Additional technical amendment clarifies the title of section 0805.06.06 from Quality Awards for Licensed CCAP Approved Providers to Quality Awards for CCAP Approved Providers Licensed by the RI Department of Children Youth and Families. Public Hearing: Friday, May 16th, 2014 at 11:00 AM at the Louis Pasteur Building, 57 Howard Avenue, Cranston, RI 02920 in the West Wing Conference room.
