Every five years, the Department of Health Services (DHS) is required to renew the Children’s Long-Term Support (CLTS) Program application with the federal government. DHS received federal approval for changes that are designed to make the program more accessible, family-focused, and inclusive. The changes are outlined in DMS Numbered Memo 2021-09. One of the exciting changes was to add the following new services to the program:
- Discovery and Career Planning
- Grief and Bereavement Counseling
- Health and Wellness
- Participant and Family Direction Broker Services
- Participant and Family-Directed Goods and Services
- Safety Planning and Prevention
- Virtual Equipment and Supports
DHS is now seeking providers to register to deliver the new services to CLTS Program participants and their families.
