  • New DHS resource for news and updates about home and community-based services (HCBS) reforms

    DHS developed the Making sense of systems change page to help consumers, providers, lead agencies and others stay informed during the implementation of home and community-based services reforms. DHS recognizes the many changes, such the new rates system and the transition to positive supports, have been difficult and confusing.

    We feel it is important to address common misunderstandings and provide awareness about what resources are available to help. There are tools in place to assist you; we want to connect you with them. Please check the page weekly for updates. DHS will use it to deliver information about:

    • News
    • Training (webinars, events, video conferences, etc.)
    • Links to policy clarification and resources
    • Technical assistance.
