The hearing may be rescheduled if the appellant or their representative files a written, signed request for a new hearing date with the Bureau of Assistance Hearings not more than 10 calendar days after the date of the dismissal notice. The request
may be sent to BAH by mail or fax. The request must show good cause for non-appearance.
If the request is granted, BAH sends a letter with the new hearing date. The FCRC must restore any benefits that the client lost because of the dismissal.
