Overview

The Disability Services Division (DSD) regional resource specialists (RRS) are DHS staff who provide support to lead agency staff who administer DSD services, programs and waivers. Each lead agency is assigned an RRS.

How we can help

We provide:

  • • Case consultation
  • • Communication and updates about DSD initiatives
  • • Policy clarification and interpretation
  • • Technical assistance
  • • Training.
  • We often facilitate regional meetings with lead agency staff to provide this support.

    How to contact us
