SB 1, Section 48 (81st Session)
Provides $207 million General Revenue for home and community-based programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and for reshaping the system of services.
7,832 people on interest lists will receive waiver related community services by August 2011.
Additionally, HCS services will be provided to people leaving large & medium ICFs, children aging out of foster care, and children & adults at risk of institutionalization.
The funding for increased community services is contingent, in part, on the transfer of case management from the HCS Provider to the LA.
