Rule Review

This webpage offers you the opportunity to comment on the Ohio Administrative Code Rules that govern child abuse and neglect prevention programs for Ohio’s families and children through the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund’s regional model. Whether you are a child professional whose daily tasks are guided by the rules, someone who has had experience with some aspect of Ohio’s regional model, or simply an individual who cares about how Ohio’s programs for families and children are administered, you have knowledge and insight to offer.

All of the rules listed below are scheduled to be reviewed or revised after January 1st, 2021.  State law requires agencies to review its rules at least once every five years to ensure their continued need and relevance.  Some rules may be scheduled for amendment to reflect changes in state or federal law or policy.
