Indiana Direct Service Workforce Plan

Training Action Area - Overall Vision

To meet Hoosiers’ home and community-based services needs, Indiana’s direct service workforce will be proficient in core competencies with options to pursue professional development opportunities, including specialized on-the-job training and academic study. Direct service workers’ training credentials will be portable across HCBS settings and employment arrangements to ensure high-quality, reliable supports and services as well as administrative efficiency.

Stakeholder Groups (Action Group & Working Group)

FSSA plans to meet with a Training Action Group composed of a broad group of stakeholders, who will provide final feedback and considerations on Training activities. Additionally, a smaller Training Working Group has been established specifically to help guide the development of a legislatively-mandated RFP for training program operation per 2023 House Enrolled Act 1342.

Home and Community Support Professional Training – Scope of Work Draft Excerpts

A Home and Community Support Professional Training RFP scope of work excerpt is available here in draft form ahead of the RFP release required by House Enrolled Act 1342. This excerpt has been assembled for the benefit of stakeholders who have supported the design of this program from the outset. Developing a SoW for a new program that will be subject to competitive procurement necessarily requires materials be kept confidential and free from the influence of potential bidders, but at the same time the State wishes to show clear examples of how the stakeholder design inputs have translated into actual contract language. Broadly, this material reflects requirements that will be placed on an HCSP Training vendor. The excerpt is not necessarily reflective of a full Scope of Work but includes requirements relevant to stakeholder information sharing sessions and expressed topics of interest. Interested stakeholders should note this is one, draft component of implementing the requirements of HEA 1342, but is not reflective of all components of the legislation nor final state of a future HCSP training program.
