The Colorado Department of Human Services has authority to operate a Child Welfare 24 Hour Licensing Appeal Panel as described in C.R.S. 26-6-909(4), and provides an appeal right for any applicant or licensee to appeal any standard that in their opinion caused an undue hardship or when, in their opinion, the standard is too stringently applied. The panel consists of persons representing various state and local government agencies with an interest in, and a concern for, children. The panel's task is to review appeals and make recommendations to the Department. Members of the Appeal Panel are appointed by the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Human Services.
