Virtual Public Listening Session
Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD)
Service Provider Licensing
The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Aging and Disability Services (OADS) and Division of Licensing and Certification (DLC) are hosting a virtual listening session to gather input on licensing of service providers for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) receiving services under Sections 18, 20, 21 and 29.
As part of Maine’s Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Final Transition to Compliance Plan (TCP), the state has committed to reviewing licensing requirements to resolve any conflict with HCBS settings standards. Stakeholders can attend this listening session to provide input on proposed changes. Also, a Department proposal to license IDD providers by agency rather than by service location, was approved by the Legislature and rules will be adopted in the coming months for a proposed implementation date of July 1, 2024. See PL 2023, c. 89.
This listening session will be held via Zoom on Monday, September 18th, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
