Chapter 221
Action Withdrawn

Title of Regulation: 22VAC40-221. Additional Daily Supervision Rate Structure (amending 22VAC40-221-10, 22VAC40-221-20, 22VAC40-221-30, 22VAC40-221-50, 22VAC40-221-70; adding 22VAC40-221-80; repealing 22VAC40-221-25).

Statutory Authority: § 63.2-217 of the Code of Virginia; 42 USC § 673.

The State Board of Social Services has WITHDRAWN the regulatory action for 22VAC40-221, Additional Daily Supervision Rate Structure, which was published as a Proposed Regulation in 37:19 VA.R. 2940-2946 May 10, 2021. This action is being withdrawn because since publication of the proposed regulation, concerns have been raised about the uniform assessment instrument used to determine the additional daily supervision rate. A workgroup, which includes the Governor's Safe and Sound Task Force, Virginia Commission on Youth, foster parents, and other stakeholders, made several recommendations, including exploring a new uniform assessment instrument. This action is withdrawn and a new action will be initiated that will reflect the workgroup recommendations and current practices.
