Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) Policy Manual

This manual is the primary source for consumer directed community supports (CDCS) policy, and is a reference for lead agencies, fiscal support entities, support planners and people who use CDCS.

What is CDCS?

CDCS is a service option available to people on the home and community-based services (HCBS) waivers and Alternative Care (AC) program. CDCS gives a person flexibility in service planning and responsibility for self-directing his or her services, including hiring and managing support workers. CDCS may include traditional services and goods, and self-designed services.

Reviewed and reorganized CDCS policy pages

DHS is in the process of reviewing and reorganizing all CDCS policy pages. This includes transferring information previously found in the CDCS Lead Agency Operations Manual, DHS-4270 (PDF) to this CDCS Policy Manual. This manual is a subset of the Community-Based Services Manual (CBSM) and is accessible through the CBSM.

Eventually, all CDCS policy information will live in this manual. DHS-4270 will remain live until this process is complete.

What’s new?

DHS will announce additions to this manual:

  • • On CDCS – Updates to the CDCS Policy Manual
  • • Via the AASD community support for seniors eList and the DSD lead agency eList.
