What is happening? Over the next year,Vermont will receive one-time funding estimated to be $162 million dollars.This money must be spent on Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS). It can’t pay for anything that the State would have paid for anyway. HCBS are things like supported employment, respite, shared living, home health, and help from a direct support provider.
The Public Hearing will take place on Thursday, July 22, 2021 from 11:00 – 1:00 PM.
