The U.S. Federal Government has challenged states to create systems of real community inclusion enabling older adults and people with disabilities to live, work, and thrive in the community. As this is a civil rights issue, states are required to develop plans to improve their systems. With increased emphasis on people with disabilities in the workforce, the Federal Government’s new requirements reflect a shared commitment with state and local governments to improve the lives of all the people they serve.
PCG supports state and local agencies across the country in meeting this shared commitment. With growing numbers of older adults and people with disabilities living independently, it is essential for states to consider how best to finance, manage, and improve programs that support the needs of these expanding populations.
We are a person-centered organization, and our team brings years of expertise and knowledge to assist agencies with their efforts to foster real community inclusion. Our collective experience in state and local government roles includes work in the following areas:
- Medicaid policy
- Developmental disability systems leadership
- Statewide system of service coordination management
- Person-centered planning
- Statewide compliance assessments
- Entry-point and case management systems for all long-term services and supports (LTSS) populations
- Rate development and data analytics
