Report of the Independent Reviewer on Compliance with the Consent Agreement US v. VA, Civil Action No. 3:12 CV 059

Virginia

“The IR reported in the last Report to the Court that the Commonwealth had achieved compliance with certain requirements of the Agreement. During this, the sixth review period, the Commonwealth through its lead agency, DBHDS, and its sister agencies has maintained compliance with these same provisions and has come into compliance with additional requirements. The Commonwealths leaders have continued to meet regularly and to collaborate to develop and implement plans to address the Agreement’s requirements and to improve people’s lives. The IR also reported in the last Report to the Court that the Commonwealth lagged significantly behind schedule. It continues to do so. There have been significant delays in the it’s (sic) compliance with requirements that are critical to an effective community-based services system for individuals with ID/DD. For two years, the Commonwealth’s primary strategy to come into compliance has been the redesign of it HCBS waiver program."
