7 AAC 75.480. Grant or denial of permanent variance

(B) the variance will improve the quality of life for the home's residents; or

(C) the variance will afford a unique treatment opportunity; and

(2) that the home has an effective plan for meeting the goal of the statute or regulation from which a permanent variance is sought, and that, after discussion with or information from the residents, or the residents' representatives, regarding the request for variance and the plan for meeting the goal of the statute or regulation, the plan adequately protects the health, safety, and welfare of the residents and meets the standards of AS 47.33 and this chapter.

(b) The department will issue a written decision on an application for a permanent variance and will deliver a copy of the decision to the applicant, personally or by certified mail, and to each resident of the home or the resident's representative.

(c) Upon granting a permanent variance, the department will issue a new license containing a description of the permanent variance.

(d) A permanent variance remains in effect for the duration of the license and will be incorporated into each license renewal, unless the department finds good cause to revoke the variance.
