Notice of Public Hearing Concerning the Community Rehabilitation Program

Notice is hereby given that four public hearings will be held by the Louisiana Workforce Commissionís Office of Workforce Development/Louisiana Rehabilitation Services on Tuesday, Nov. 22 at 9 a.m., at the following locations: Baton Rouge, LRS Regional Office, 3651 Cedarcrest Ave.; Alexandria, LRS Regional Office, 900 Murray St.; Shreveport, LRS Regional Office, 1525 Fairfield Ave.; and Thibodaux, LRS Regional Office, 1442 Tiger Dr.

Louisiana Rehabilitation Services proposes to amend two sections of its Community Rehabilitation Program (CRP) Policy Manual and to add two new sections. The agency proposes to remove the reference to licenses from its policy as this is not a required standard for CRPs, and is proposing to amend its policy to align with the federal minimum standards. The proposed sections will provide vendors with additional guidance and will reflect current agency practices. The public hearing will be held to obtain views on the proposed amendments.

The public and interested parties are invited to attend. For those persons who are unable to attend the public hearing, written statements and comments will be accepted through Friday, Nov. 25, 2011. Written comments may be mailed to the Louisiana Rehabilitation Services, Attn: Mark Martin, Director, Post Office Box 91297, Baton Rouge, LA 70821-9297 or faxed to 225-219-2942.
