Re: Supervised Group Living Homes to Waiver Homes Conversion Update
Date: June 4, 2013
In a prior communication dated January 24, 2013, information was shared regarding assistance from the State to providers in the conversion of Supported Group Living (SGL) Homes to Waiver Homes. This communication outlined that the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) would work with Providers on a 1-on-1 basis until June 30, 2013, to develop and award provider-specific Risk Mitigation Grants. DDRS has been completing this process with many Providers and will continue to do so past June 30, 2013, on an individual basis, as DDRS is committed to ensuring that each of our consumers’ needs are met and health and safety are provided for. The Risk Mitigation Grants will continue to be available after June 30 to providers.
Thank you for your continued efforts in ensuring our consumers receive all supports necessary to enable them to achieve healthy, self-sufficient and productive lives.
