The Commonwealth’s draft Olmstead Plan is available for public review and comment until Friday, April 13, 2018.
The draft Plan and instructions for submitting feedback are available online.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s 1999 Olmstead decision indicates that states have a legal obligation to administer programs and activities in the most integrated setting appropriate to the needs of qualified individuals with disabilities. The 2018 Plan is intended to track the progress the Commonwealth has made since its 2008 Olmstead Plan and set forth a plan for continuing to build on that progress.
Please feel free to share this opportunity for feedback with your networks. Thank you.
