Denver Asks for Input on Services for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Survey Is Open to I/DD Individuals, Caregivers, Providers and Agencies Until May 14
DHS will use the results to better understand opinions and perspectives regarding access to services in Denver, barriers to accessing services and what is working and not working when people want to access mill levy dollars.
Denver residents pay property tax through a mill levy that supports individuals with I/DD and families. DHS contracts with Rocky Mountain Human Services (RMHS) to use the mill levy funds to provide services not available through Medicaid and other sources. RMHS also distributes mill levy funds to community agencies, providers and family members to benefit Denver residents with I/DD.
Examples of mill levy-funded services include rental assistance, transportation, physical and occupational therapy, respite, parent training and support, home and vehicle modification, and behavioral and vocational services.
DHS is asking the following people to take the survey:
Caregivers of people with I/DD who live in Denver
People with I/DD in Denver
Service providers of people with I/DD
Advocates for people with I/DD
People who live and/or provide services in Denver
The online survey is available in both English and Spanish at www.surveymonkey.com/r/DenverIDDSurvey.
