2018 Revised Texas Promoting Independence Plan

Texas

~~“The 2018 Revised Texas Promoting Independence Plan is the ninth update to the original plan submitted in January 2001. Texas’ plan is a direct response to the United States (U.S.) Supreme Court’s Olmstead ruling, which requires states, within certain conditions, to provide individuals an opportunity to live in the most integrated setting to receive long-term services and supports (LTSS).1 The Initiative includes all LTSS and the state’s efforts to improve the provision of community-based alternatives, ensuring these programs in Texas effectively foster independence and acceptance of people with disabilities, and provide opportunities for people to live productive lives in their home communities.."
