Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act. Requires the Department of Human Services to create a program to select people listed on the Department's Prioritization of the Urgency of Need of Services (PUNS) database to receive housing and community-based support services. Provides that by June 30, 2022, no less than 50% of the persons selected from the PUNS database shall qualify for or receive community-based support services under the State's Home and Community-Based Services Waiver for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (State's Waiver Program); and no less than 50% of the persons selected from the PUNS database shall qualify for or receive both housing and community-based support services funded by the Department. Provides that by June 30, 2022, the Department shall fully eliminate the 8-person community-integrated living arrangements model as a housing option for persons eligible for services under the State's Waiver program and shall instead implement a flexible housing model, as defined by the Department by rule, that utilizes a needs-based sliding scale to determine a person's eligibility and placement for housing. Contains provisions concerning reporting requirements. Provides that implementation of the provisions shall be contingent on the receipt of all necessary federal approvals.
