230-07-045. Obtaining a waiver for significant progress requirements

(1) If a charitable or nonprofit licensee is unable to demonstrate that it has made significant progress, the licensee may request, in writing, a waiver for all, or a portion, of the requirements.

(2) In the waiver request, the organization's board must:

(a) Acknowledge that it is aware of the circumstances; and

(b) Show it has taken steps to correct the situation which prevented compliance; and

(c) Show it has approved a plan that addresses delivery of program services in the future; and

(d) Show that the organization expended at least twenty-five percent of its net gambling income to provide program services in the period under review. We may consider the purchase of nondepreciable assets for program purposes as part of this percentage.

(3) When deciding to approve or deny a waiver, we consider whether the licensee:

(a) Had a temporary inability to comply due to unusual circumstances; and

(b) Is reserving funds to start or expand specific programs in the future; and

(c) Used a substantial amount of capital assets that are not subject to depreciation or amortization to provide program services, for example, fully depreciated building or equipment; fully amortized leasehold improvements; assets which are not normally depreciated, such as land used for athletic fields, riding areas, or parks; and

(d) Conducted a substantial portion of its services through volunteers.

(4) If we deny the waiver, the licensee may request a brief adjudicative hearing before an administrative law judge under the provisions of Title 230 WAC and chapter 34.05 RCW.
