ACWDL 08-01- Integration of County Performance Standards Application Samples (1/18/08)

Previously the Program Review Section reviewed Counties’ application processing times using two different application samples, one for general applications and one for disability-based applications. This ACWDL changes the process and integrates the area of application processing into one application sample. The idea is that the new process will create samples that are more representative of the total application population; the old process was yielding low numbers of reviewable disability- based cases. The reviews will be based on the same time standards of 45 days for general applications and 90 days for disability-based applications; of course disability-based applications that cannot be processed within 90 days due to state agency delay will not be considered.   [Download]
