Certification of youth offender foster homes

(1) A person may not operate a youth offender foster home without a certificate of approval issued by the Oregon Youth Authority.

(2) A person may apply for a certificate of approval to operate a youth offender foster home by submitting an application to the youth authority on a form furnished by the youth authority.

(3)(a) Upon receipt of an application under subsection (2) of this section, the youth authority shall cause an investigation to be made of the applicant and the applicant’s home. The youth authority, in accordance with rules adopted under ORS 420.892 (Certification standards), shall determine whether to issue a certificate of approval to the applicant. The certificate must be in the form prescribed by the youth authority and must state the name of the foster parent, the address of the premises to which the certificate applies and the maximum number of youth offenders to be maintained in the youth offender foster home at any one time. The certificate applies only to the premises designated in the certificate and a change of residence automatically terminates the certificate. The certificate is effective for one year.

A person whose application for a certificate of approval has been denied may appeal the decision to the Court of Appeals in the manner provided in ORS 183.480 (Judicial review of agency orders) for the review of orders in contested cases.

(4)(a) After notice and opportunity for hearing as provided in ORS 183.310 (Definitions for chapter) to 183.482 (Jurisdiction for review of contested cases), the youth authority may revoke, deny an application to renew or attach conditions to a certificate of approval issued under subsection (3)(a) of this section for a violation of any provision of this section or ORS 420.892 (Certification standards) or of the rules adopted under ORS 420.892 (Certification standards).

(b) A person whose certificate of approval is revoked, not renewed or is made subject to conditions by a decision of the youth authority under paragraph (a) of this subsection may appeal the decision to the Court of Appeals in the manner provided in ORS 183.480 (Judicial review of agency orders) for the review of orders in contested cases.
