Proposed Rules & Public Notices

Proposed Rules & Public Notices

The Department of Human Services (DHS) follows the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) to adopt, amend, or repeal a rule.  DHS values public comments on proposed rules. Comments may be submitted to ORP@dhs.arkansas.gov. The public comment period for each proposed rule appears below.

If DHS receives comments on a proposed rule, a Public Comment Summary with all comments and responses will be published on the proposed rule’s individual page after the comment period ends. 

The date identified below for a recent final rule is the date the rule becomes effective.

To sign-up for notifications on DHS proposed changes, submit a request to ORP@dhs.arkansas.gov.
