Regulation Authority :

42-72-5

Purpose and Reason :

The Foster and Adoption Regulations for Licensure are amended to align the fire safety requirements for foster and adoptive parents' homes with the requirements for private residences. The superseded regulations required that kinship, foster, and adoptive parents homes comply with fire and lead standards that are far more stringent than what is required for residents without a foster child placement. Home settings, like kinship and family foster care, are not institutional settings and should not be held to such standards.

Brief statement of Reason for Finding Imminent Peril :

The superseded regulations prevented licensure for many families resulting in children remaining in unlicensed or more restrictive settings.
