Title 22, §87101(c)(2), defines "capacity" as the ". . . maximum number of persons authorized to be provided services at any one time in any licensed facility."
If a facility wishes to change its capacity, it must request a Change in Capacity from CCLD, via a LIC 200. One approved for additional residents, the state issues to the Licensee a new license reflecting the change. The Capacity a facility is licensed for appears on each License (LIC 203). Providing care to more residents than stated on the License is a violation of Title 22, §87204(a).
