Human Services Board

The Board is a citizen's panel consisting of seven members created by the legislature pursuant to 3 V.S.A., §3090. Its duties are to act as a fair hearing board for appeals brought by individuals who are aggrieved by decisions or policies of departments and programs within the Agency of Human Services.

The Board has two hearing officers who conduct hearings on a regular basis in each district in which the Agency of Human Services maintains offices. The hearing officers issue written recommendations that include findings of fact and a proposed decision for the Board to act upon. The Board meets on a monthly basis to consider those recommendations. Parties to an appeal can attend the Board meetings and argue whether the Board should or should not adopt the hearing officers' recommendations.
