The Department of Health and Human Services will hold a public hearing to receive public comments on  
proposed changes to the State Disability Assistance Program rule set.  
The purpose of these rules is to set guidance for DHHS on how to process and determine eligibility for  
the Family Independence and State Disability Assistance programs. DHHS seeks to amend the current  
rules to add telephone interview, in addition to in-person interview, for application review. These rules  
seek to improve client service by allowing a telephone interview in the event of the recipient having  
medical issues, transportation issues, child care issues, or having to take leave from his or her  
employment in order to complete the application process.  
By authority conferred on the Department of Health and Human Services by section 6 of the Social  
Welfare Act, 1939 PA 280, MCL 400.6.  
The proposed rules will take effect 7 days after filing with the Secretary of State. The proposed rules are  
the Michigan Register. Copies of these proposed rules may also be obtained by mail or electronic mail at  
the following email address:  
Comments on these proposed rules may be made at the hearing, by mail, or by electronic mail at the  
following addresses until 3/25/2022 at 05:00PM.
