National Council on Disability (NCD)

Roundtable Discussion:

Strengthening the Home and Community-Based Ecosystem

Join the National Council on Disability on January 26, 12-3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) for a virtual, two-part policy roundtable on strengthening the home- and community-based ecosystem, with a focus on the direct care workforce and affordable, accessible housing.

NCD is hosting this roundtable to provide a briefing of the major findings and recommendations from the agency’s recent Strengthening the HCBS Ecosystem: Responding to Dangers of Congregate Settings during COVID-19 report and to share its vision for a “community living bias” in place of an institutional bias. The roundtable will be hosted virtually and includes invited perspectives from consumers, advocates, litigators, and senators of state and federal government.

Roundtable Agenda:

  • Opening Remarks
  • NCD Report Overview
  • Panel 1: The Direct Care Workforce Shortage (beginning approx. 12:20 p.m.)
  • Panel 2: The Accessible, Affordable Housing Shortage (beginning approx. 1:30 p.m.)
