Updated Rule Chapter
During the 2023 session, the Idaho legislature approved as final the updated rule chapter under IDAPA 16.03.19, “Certified Family Homes.” These rules became effective March 28, 2023, and have now been codified and published. The rule chapter was updated as directed under Executive Order No. 2020-01, “Zero-Based Regulation.” As stated in the order, the purpose of these rule updates was to clarify, simplify, and reduce regulatory burden for CFH providers. CFH providers are expected to read and comply with these standards going forward. A summary of highlighted changes can be found on this page under the Guidance section.
Over the coming weeks, the Certified Family Home Management Team will be finalizing and posting updates to the CFH Provider Manual, including redesigned forms that, if properly used by CFH providers, will help them comply with the updated rules. All current CFH providers will be mailed a hard copy of the contents of the CFH Provider Manual in the third quarter of 2023.
