Home and community providers in Maine could get $11 million in additional funding
Maine's Department of Health and Human Services says it plans to give home and community-based providers $11 million in additional funding from the American Rescue Plan.
If the plan receives federal approval, $5 million of funding would be used to improve access to work and community support for individuals served by the providers.
The remaining $6 million would be used for one-time payments to group homes for people with developmental disabilities to support staffing levels.
The department says it hopes to award the funding early this summer.
