Semi-Annual Rule-Making Agenda

July 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020

This report is a list of rules that will be under development by DCYF from July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. DCYF files a rule-making agenda with the Code Reviser twice each year to comply with RCW 34.05.314. There may be additional DCYF rule-making activities not included in this agenda as the department responds to implement new state laws, to meet federal requirements, or to meet unforeseen circumstances.

Contact the DCYF Rules Coordinator:

  • If you have questions about this rule-making agenda or DCYF rule-making activity.
  • If you are interested in receiving DCYF rule-making notices by e-mail.
  • Paper copies of DCYF rule-making notices by postal mail are available upon request.
