Jan 1, 2016 | Reports

The report provides an overview of the direct support professional workforce in New York and makes a number of recommendations to strengthen the direct support professional workforce. A key recommendation is to implement and publicly fund a voluntary, phased-in NY DSP credential program, beginning SFY 2016-17. ANCOR member the New York State Association of Community and Residential Agencies (NYSACRA) and the New York State Rehabilitation Association (NYSRA) were selected to collaborate with OPWDD and The University of Minnesota (UMN) on the study.
