Advisory Council

An Advisory Council with subject matter expertise will assist in developing the Commonwealth’s Olmstead Plan. The roles and responsibilities of the Olmstead Advisory Council include advising the Olmstead Planning Committee on various aspects of the development of an Olmstead Plan; reviewing and suggesting edits to the content of the Olmstead plan; identifying gaps and challenges in the draft plan, and providing recommendations; and soliciting input from stakeholders.

It is the Olmstead Planning Committee’s intention that members of the Council represent the diversity of stakeholders interested in this topic, including representatives from: providers, non-profit entities and community-based organizations with demonstrated expertise in community-based housing, home- and community-based long-term services and supports, consumers with disabilities, family care-givers, consumer advocacy organizations, and other entities to ensure broad representation.
