Request for Public Comment - Public Comment Period Open for Fiscal Year 2023 Carry-Out Meal Operating Standard for Service Programs

The Behavioral and Physical Health and Aging Services Administration, Bureau of Aging, Community Living, and Supports (ACLS Bureau), is requesting the addition of a new service standard to the Operating Standards for Service Programs. The Operating Standards represent a compilation of the policies, standards, rules, regulations, and statutes most directly relating to service programs. The ACLS Bureau is proposing to create a new Carry-Out Meal (COM) Service Program standard to enable the continuation of COMs through an optional service category once the federally declared Public Health Emergency has ended. 

Public comment is open from February 13, 2023, to March 17, 2023. Please submit comments via email to Marla Price at Written feedback may also be submitted to: Marla Price, Capitol Commons Center, 400 South Pine Street, P.O. Box 30676, Lansing, MI 48909.
