What other funds are available through the area agency on aging?

(1) Except as provided under this section, the adult day services rules under this chapter do not apply to adult day care or day health services funded under chapters 74.38 and 74.41 RCW.
(2) An area agency on aging that elects to provide adult day services using Senior Citizens Services Act funding under chapter 74.38 RCW or respite care funding under chapter 74.41 RCW must contract with an adult day center that meets all administrative and facility requirements under WAC 388-71-0736 through 388-71-0774.
(3) The adult day care or day health services funded under chapters 74.38 or 74.41 RCW must be the same as the day care services required under WAC 388-71-0704 or the day health services required under WAC 388-71-0706. The area agency on aging may require additional services by contract.
(4) The area agency on aging may, by contract, establish eligibility and assessment requirements for day care or day health services in accordance with locally identified needs. However, funding provided under chapters 74.38 or 74.41 RCW may only be used to meet the needs of individuals who are not eligible for adult day care under WAC 388-71-0708 or for adult day health under WAC 388-71-0710, or who are eligible for those services and are not receiving them because of funding limitations.
(5) Nothing in this section or chapter may be construed as requiring an area agency on aging to contract with an adult day center, whether or not the center has a COPES and RCL contract. Nor may anything in this section or chapter be construed as creating an entitlement to state-funded adult day services authorized under chapters 74.38 and 74.41 RCW.
