  • Self-Sufficiency (SSP) Rule Advisory Committee:

    A Rule Advisory Committee (RAC) must be used prior to giving notice of intent to adopt, amend, or repeal rules in which there are issues that will substantially impact the public. (See DHS-010-012) The purpose of a RAC is to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to participate in the rule development process. The SSP RAC includes members who represent the interests of persons likely to be affected by proposed rules including client advocates, provider representatives, public policy organizations, and other interested parties. Meetings are open to the public, although participation is limited to members of the SSP RAC. For more information about RAC meetings, or to become a member of the SSP RAC, please contact the SSP RAC Administrator.
