Category: Formal/Informal Community Supports

  • Investment Partner: Center for Quality and Leadership (CQL)
  • Investment Location: Statewide

​The Educating Consumers on the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Rule will educate individuals with developmental disabilities and/or family members to be equipped and confident to conduct training and advocacy on the new HCBS settings rule as a result of the training and mentoring received from the HCBS Advocates Creating Transformation (HCBS-ACT) project. While participating in the training on the new HCBS rule, those trained will report an increase in their knowledge about HCBS waivers, the new rule, and its impact on the service system.
