About the Person-Centered Planning Comprehensive System Transformation Statewide Training Initiative

This training initiative is funded by the Department of Health to support best practices in Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)-compliant person-centered planning throughout the State. The initiative consists of an extensive series of Regional Trainings and Learning Institutes held across the State in 2019 and 2020, at no cost to participants. The focus of the trainings and institutes will be to grow person-centered thinking, planning, and practice capacity in HCBS covered service systems in the State.
