The Department, pursuant to Section 25.5-10-207.5(4)(a), C.R.S (2015), must: "develop, in consultation with intellectual and developmental disability system stakeholders, a comprehensive strategic plan...to enroll eligible persons...with intellectual and developmental disabilities into home and community based services programs, and programs pursuant to this Article at the time those persons choose to enroll...or need the services or supports."
This page exists to provide and exchange information with clients, stakeholders, providers, legislators, and policymakers about the Department's efforts to ensure that all eligible individuals receive the services they need at the time they're needed, within the constraints of the state's limited financial resources. When funding limits the availability of services, waiting lists are established for individuals seeking services.
See below for the strategic plans submitted to date, information about current enrollments, waiting list totals, funding, and ways to get involved with the strategic planning process. Check back as this site continues to evolve.
