NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES

A public hearing will be held in the Department of Social Services Building, Prairie Conference Room, 811 East 10th Street, Sioux Falls, SD 57103, on Friday, May 13, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. Central Time, to consider the adoption and amendment of proposed Department of Social Services’ Child Protection Services Administrative Rules of South Dakota numbered

§§ 67:14:32:32, 67:14:32:33, 67:42:09:18.02.

The effect of the rule changes will be to establish a cap on the cost of adoptive home studies that the Department of Social Services will now reimburse, to replace the language of a specific program with broad topics that must be included in the host family training that adds flexibility yet maintains minimum standards, and to update a cross-reference.

The reason for adopting the proposed rules is to implement the changes from the passage of HB 1133 from the 2022 Legislative Session, to reflect additional programs or curriculum now available to child placement agencies in South Dakota for training host families, and to update the cross reference to include the federal requirements under the Model Licensing Standards for Foster Care to apply to host families such as medication storage, emergency preparedness measures, and living space requirements.

Persons interested in presenting amendments, data, opinions, and arguments for or against the proposed rules may:
1) Appear in-person at the hearing;
