C.R.S. Section 30-17-103
Standards and guidelines


If a temporary general assistance program is undertaken, the board of county commissioners of each county, by ordinance, shall establish standards and guidelines for determining who is eligible to receive temporary general assistance, what types of assistance shall be offered, what amounts of assistance shall be paid, and for what periods of time such assistance shall be offered.


In adopting and promulgating such standards and guidelines, the board of county commissioners may establish requirements of residency for a specified minimum period, not to exceed six months, and may also set different residency requirements for different types of relief.


The board of county commissioners, in the standards and guidelines adopted pursuant to this article, may require that any applicant for temporary general assistance search for employment and accept employment that is offered and also enroll with the divisions of employment and training and unemployment insurance in order to be eligible to receive temporary general assistance. The requirements, however, do not apply to an applicant who is unable to work due to a temporary disability. The board may require verification of a disability by a medical examination. The requirements to search for employment do not apply to persons who are sixty-five years of age and older.
