Emerging From COVID-19: Panel on Using Data to Transform Whole Person Services and Supports

Monday, September 27th | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST

During this session, presenters from providers will share data and stories from the public health emergency. Particular attention will be paid to COVID-19 immunizations for the I/DD population based on geography, age, type of disability, residential setting, and timeliness from each state’s phased priority dates for people with disabilities. 

The American Rescue Plan and the 10% FMAP bump provide a unique funding opportunity to help accelerate changes in HCBS policy for critical updates to services and supports which will determine the trajectory for the future. The presenters will share lessons learned from the pandemic and its disparate effect on individuals with I/DD along with their influence on planning for the future on topics including employment, moves to more integrated setting, the DSP workforce crisis, and self-direction.
