Cost Share Programs Manual Revisions

The Cost Share Committee is reviewing all manual language to develop a concise program manual for all Commission Cost Share Programs.  The commission delegated authority to the committee to revise policies for those where only a program name change is required.

For review purposes, the name changes in the proposed policies have been adopted, as well as style changes to conform to the Associated Press style that is used by the department.  All content and wording changes are highlighted using the track changes tool.

The committee will be presenting manual revisions to the commission for consideration.
