Community NOW!

What is Community NOW?

Community NOW! is a group of people from around Idaho who meet in Boise. This group is made up of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), family advocates, providers, and other caregivers. The group talks about the Medicaid Adult Developmental Disability (DD) program and changes that could be made to better meet your needs. The voices of adults with IDD and their family advocates are the most important voices in this group.  The group began meeting on January 2017 and worked for six months to create a list of recommendations to improve the adult DD program.

To review the recommendations of the group please click here to see the final report. 

On August 18, 2017, members of Community NOW! presented the recommendations to the Administration of the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare. To view the video highlights of the presentation, please click here.
