Delacare: Requirements for Child Placing Agencies

After several periods of public comment, the new Delacare: Regulations for Child Placing Agencies became effective June 1, 2014.  Two versions of these new regulations are posted here; the regulations in administrative code format and in a user-friendly simple numbering system that this office will use for monitoring compliance with regulations.

Although the revised regulations become effective June 1, 2014, there will be a period of implementation and facilities will not be cited for non-compliances to the new regulations until December 1, 2014.  Between June 1 and November 30, 2014, licensing specialists will follow their usual compliance visitation schedules and complaint procedures.  Facilities visited between June 1 and November 30 will be reviewed under the current regulations and any non-compliances cited will be based on the current regulations.  However, technical assistance will be provided so that the facility will know if their current practices are in compliance with the new regulations.  A facility will not be cited for any non-compliance with the new regulations between June 1 and November 30, 2014.

Beginning December 1, 2014 facilities will be reviewed and non-compliances cited based on the new regulations.
