Technical Assistance and Provider Transformation
The Employment and Community Integration Training and Technical Assistance Center provides TA to providers currently providing services to people with disabilities. The primary goals of the TA and Provider Transformation include:
Identify and train Utah subject matter experts (USME) who can mentor other providers through the transformation process.
Provide technical assistance that promotes a sustainable pathway for Utah providers to achieve HCBS settings rule compliance.
Increase the number of persons supported by DSPD who are engage in competitive integrated employment and community life engagement.
Reduce the reliance on facility-based services across the Utah Provider network while simultaneously increasing the focus on community-life and employment services.
Provider Selection Process
Providers will be selected based on specific response to the request for Technical assistance application. Applicants must be DSPD providers and licensed to provide services to people with disabilities in Utah. If selected to receive technical assistance, providers will be paired with a subject matter expert (SME). At that time, providers will complete a self-assessment of provider needs. The SME will then work with the provider to develop a transformation plan which will include (a) areas of need, (b) specific transformation outcomes, and (c) specific benchmarks and timelines for transformation.
Applications are due by May 30th.
