The Task Force for Assessment of Services and Supports for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities was established by HEA 1102 in the 2017 session of the Indiana General Assembly. The task force will be led by Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, a champion on issues important to people with disabilities and their families. A broad assessment of intellectual and developmental disabilities services has not taken place since 1997, when the 317 Commission was established to create a comprehensive plan for services during the time state-run institutions were closing and services were shifting to home and community-based supports. Meetings will be held around the state for the purpose of gathering input and prepare a comprehensive plan for implementation of community-based services provided to people with intellectual and other disabilities no later than November 1, 2018.
The August 22nd event will be held at Indiana University Southeast in the University Center Hoosier Room. For more information, go to the Indiana Task Force Website.
