State Policies & Initiatives: 

“The United States Department of Justice (the Department) has completed its investigation of the State of Maine (Maine, or the State) under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 12131−12134, and its implementing regulation, 28 C.F.R. Part 35. The Department opened this investigation in response to a complaint from a Maine resident alleging that the home support service limits under the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) MaineCare program’s “Home and Community Services for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities or Autism Spectrum Disorder” waiver (Section 21 waiver) place the complainant’s adult son (the Complainant) at risk of unnecessary segregation. This letter sets forth the Department’s findings of fact and conclusions of law and the minimum steps the State must take to meet its legal obligations and remedy the violations the Department has identified.”
