Title:    IDD Services Local Plan 2018-2019
Presented by: Jacob Ulczynski

Discussion and appropriate action regarding the Alamo Area Council of Governments 2018-2019 Local Plan for Intellectual and Developmental Disability Services.
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) requires that each Local Intellectual and Developmental Disability Authority develop and implement a local plan that is: consistent with the strategic priorities referenced in the HHSC System Strategic Plan; in accordance with Tex. Health and Safety Code §533A.0352; and, in accordance with the Guidelines for Local Service Area Planning.
HHSC has provided Local IDD Authorities a recommended template with which to develop their local plans, which will result in a change to the structure of the local plan for the new contract period. Historically, the AACOG Local Plan for IDD services has been developed with a primary focus on successful implementation of the Performance Contract. In consideration of declining funding from the Texas Legislature, it would benefit IDD services in Bexar County to utilize the Local Plan as a nexus for identifying service needs and gaps in the community.
This will not result in financial impact to the IDD Services program. Funding for the IDD Services program has been included in the 2017 AACOG Budget and will be included in the 2018 AACOG Budget.
Staff recommends approval of the AACOG 2018-2019 Local Plan for Intellectual and Developmental Disability Services. If you have any questions, please contact Jacob Ulczynski at or (210) 832-5035.
