A multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee will serve a prominent role in the RRTC’s activities. This group will provide guidance, input, and feedback on research and knowledge translation activities.

The Advisory Committee will include a Participant Council and an Implementation and Adoption Council. The Participant Council’s charge is to assure that research and knowledge translation activities support a person-centered focus, and are meaningful and useful to the people who use HCBS.  Participant Council members will include adults with physical, developmental, mental health, and aging-related disabilities. The Implementation and Adoption Council’s charge is to provide feedback about the implementation of measures that could result in improved person-centered outcomes. Its members will include representatives of HCBS organizations, providers, and state Medicaid programs.
