In 2001, the Maine Department of Human Services received a three year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service to improve services for people with disabilities. This grant was part of the Real Choice Systems Change Initiative funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid. The grant funded work in four major areas: Person-centered services, Quality, Access, and Data Integration.
