Webinar on Thursday, May 28 at 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET.
ACL and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are hosting a monthly Webinar series to assist states and stakeholders in developing high quality programs to address social determinants of health (SDOH) and provider capacity building in home- and community-based services (HCBS). The series will focus on best practices in a number of key areas, including person-centered planning, guardianship reform, aligning HCBS policy with SDOH, housing, employment, community inclusion, transportation, and more.
This webinar will feature resources and projects on provider transformation from congregate settings into community integration. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) will start by discussing the National Expansion of Employment Opportunities Network (NEON) grant for competitive integrated employment. Attendees will hear from nonprofit organizations on operational implications of transitioning congregate day services and sheltered workshops to those that are truly person-centered and community-based.
There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
