Policy Development

The Bureau of Policy Development works closely with federal regulatory agencies to ensure that DHS financial assistance programs are in compliance with statutes and federal regulations.

We oversee policy development, ensures that appropriate rules are developed, makes forms available, issues policy and procedure instructions to local office staff, and improves the delivery of benefits to clients. 

We maintain electronic policy manuals for the assistance programs delivered through the Division of Family and Community Services and the Family Community Resource Centers across the state.
