Take A Stand On the Plan campaign helps people submit comments on Wisconsin HCBS Transition Plan
We have created www.takeastandontheplan.org to help self-advocates, families, and providers submit public comments to DHS. Click Take Action and use the online tool to submit comments.
We only have 30 days to submit public comments on the DHS Wisconsin Transition Plan that will require the state’s providers of home and community based services funded through Medicaid to offer supports in inclusive community settings that allow people with disabilities to have more choices about where and how they work and live.
Comments are due September 2nd, 2014.
Please reach out to your networks and tell them to Take A Stand On The Plan at www.takeastandontheplan.org.
Paper copies of the online tool and help filling it out are available upon request. Contact John Shaw at 608-266-7707. DHS must hear from people with disabilities, families and advocates that believe people with disabilities need more choice in their lives and should be a part of our communities.
Without your input, these changes may not be strong enough to make lives better!
