Olmstead (ADA) consent decrees are a means to ensure civil rights violations are addressed by state agencies. However, states are often challenged to ensure adequate systems funding for services and supports to address service capacity needs to achieve sustainability. A brief history of our consent decree will set the stage as we examine the crucial importance of Olmstead consent decrees in addressing civil rights violations and establishing expectations for systems changes for state funded I/DD services and supports.
Identify the challenges and shortcomings of consent decrees and additional efforts necessary to sustainably fund systems change.
Obtain strategies tofor obtaining rate studies engineered towards sustainable funding and how to successfully engage state legislatures in committing resources to the consent decree and rate study outcomes.
