Full report in PDF format

  • Consistent with our prior recommendations, the Agency for Persons with Disabilities now obtains more current information on the location and status of individuals on its waiting list. The agency also is assessing the needs of waiting list and waiver clients and working to prioritize individuals waiting for waiver services based on need.
  • The agency has not developed a multi-year plan to eliminate the waiting list. However, it is implementing a new budgeting system that should help with developing a plan.
