New DRM and SUFU Training Video on HCBS Settings Rule

Disability Rights Maine (DRM) and Speaking Up for Us (SUFU) recently collaborated on a recorded training, Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Settings Rule: Basics & Advocacy (YouTube). The training was led by Abbott Philson, SUFU Board Chair; and Lauren Wille, Esq., DRM staff attorney on the developmental disabilities team. A sign language interpreter is provided.

The agenda for the training:

  1. What are Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) and what is the HCBS Settings Rule?
  2. What does the HCBS Settings Rule mean for people receiving HCBS?
  3. How can we all make sure Maine follows the settings rule to improve HCBS for people?
