A Guide to the Rules for Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Settings

These rules require HCBS settings to provide opportunities for participants to engage in community life, have access to the community, control their personal resources, and seek employment and work in competitive settings. A new Question and Answer Guide regarding the new HCBS rules has been released by The National Disability Rights Network, of which DRW is a member, along with other prominent national disability organizations.
