NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

This rule is authorized by Sections 62A-3-104 and 62A-3-107 through 108. The rule clarifies exceptions to eligibility rules for individuals who are not 60 years of age but who live in a setting in which the majority of residents are qualified for aging services programs.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comments were received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The Older Americans Act allows for younger individuals in certain situations to participate in aging services programs but allows states to decide how to handle these situations. This rule provides Utah's approach to these individuals. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
