The state of Vermont received a $2 million Real Choice Systems Change Grant that will be used to identify gaps in care and coordination of services. The state will develop training materials and recruit a crew of self-advocates to train others. Nursing home placement counseling will be implemented, and a paraprofessional organization will be established. The grant also will be used to amend the state's Section 1115 waiver and research the state actions necessary to allow for direct consumer funding.
