The Living Well Quality Frameworks Grant
The NH Council on Developmental Disabilities (DD Council) is a sub-award recipient on the Living Well: NH Quality Frameworks grant.
The Living Well grant focuses on expanding the capacity of Home and Community-Based Systems and to enhance community monitoring in order to prevent abuse, neglect, and exploitation. This framework will support the state partners in enhancing and assuring the independence, integration, health, safety, and well-being of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities living in the community by improving the quality of the services and supports provided by disability service providers. The DD Council’s role as a key partner on the grant is to assist in improving access to and quality of HCBS services to individuals in the community through values-based education and training.
More information about the grant is available at: Living Well – NH Quality Frameworks | Institute on Disability/UCED.
