Join the Community First Services and Supports Council
Community First Services and Supports (CFSS) is a new self-directed home and community-based service that will be an option in the future for people living in the community who need help with day-to-day activities. If you or a loved one receive personal care assistance, you're encouraged to apply for a seat on the CFSS Council — where you'll help shape the development and implementation of the service. Apply for a council position here, selecting the option for person receiving services or family member.

VIP members: See your feedback in action
This spring, more than 60 Virtual Insight Panel members provided feedback about key employment messages that will be used by multiple state agencies that help people with disabilities find employment. Key recommendations were to clarify the target audience, provide more details about available resources and next steps, and better describe how work can impact all aspects of a person's life.
