Grant to a USA local government, Indian tribe, IHE, or nonprofit organizations to provide training programs on developing care plans for people with intellectual and development disabilities in Nebraska. Funding is intended to support a training program for families and guardians, self-advocates, service coordinators, disabled and aged service providers, and other professionals in Nebraska on person-centered plans and the power of such plans.
The funds from Medicaid’s Money Follows the Person program are to expand this training to additional stakeholders including families with children, adults with disabilities, the aged and their respective service coordination agencies in person-centered planning. Bringing a national entity to Nebraska will provide a broad, new perspective of how other states are conducting person-centered planning, provide new resources, and bring a renewed energy for ensuring that individuals have a voice in creating their plans.
The grant recipient will present a person-centered training curriculum to self-advocates, families/guardians, developmental disabilities service providers, aged and disabled service providers, service coordinators, and other advocates. Staff and leadership from the Divisions of Developmental Disabilities and Medicaid and Long Term Care will also be invited to attend. Curriculum can be created or adapted from existing curriculum to be specific for Nebraska. Training should:
An RFA for second-year funding is expected to be released. Second year funding would build on the training component to create a pilot project to address person-centered planning. One aspect would include technical assistance in the form of in-person observation of the ISP planning process to ensure the person-centered training is being correctly applied. The project coordinator would observe the planning session and provide feedback on what they did well and where they could improve. For example, self-advocates and parents/guardians would receive feedback from these planning sessions on how to better advocate for what they want and participation in the planning process.
