As an applicant of the Crisis Assistance program, you have appeal rules should you disagree with a decision of a caseworker regarding your application request(s). An appeal will grant your application further review and decision.
The appeal process begins with a written explanation of why you disagree with a policy decision. The written appeal should list your reasons for overturn of a decision. Appeals must be submitted within two weeks from date of decision.
All written appeals need to be made to the Director of the Crisis Assistance Program or the Caseworker. All appeals received will be discussed the following week after the appeal is received by the Crisis Assistance Department. Crisis Assistance personnel arrive at a consensus decision on all appeals. This decision is final. There are no other parties to appeal to after the decision has been made. The Legislative Branch will have no roles or authority in the decision making and appeal process as this program was enacted to operate under the Department of Administration.
