State Board of Human Services

The State Board of Human Services was created pursuant to Section 26-1-107, Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.). It promulgates rules for program areas in CDHS.
The State Board is a Type 1 body (which means that it has rule-making authority) comprised of nine members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the state senate for terms of four years, with statewide representation including three county commissioners as required by statute. Board members do not receive compensation for their service, but are reimbursed for necessary actual travel expenses in performance of their duties.
