APD Holds another Rule Hearing

APD Holds Rule Hearing

TALLAHASSEE — Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) will

host another rule development workshop in Tallahassee on Friday,

December 2, on residential fee collection.

The meeting will be held at the APD Central Office, 4030

Esplanade Way, in Conference Room 301 from 9 until 11 a.m. Comments

will be taken from the public during the meeting to develop the rule

for residential fee collection.

Residential fee collection will require individuals who have

income to help pay for the services they receive in a group home,

foster care facility, residential habilitation center, or

comprehensive transitional education program. APD customers will

still receive a monthly personal needs allowance before turning

excess income over to help pay for their services.
