The Caseload Forecast Council is tasked with providing legislators with a projection of how many people will be needing services each biennium from specific entitlement programs. These include K-12 education, Corrections and Aging and Long Term Care, among others. DD services are NOT included in caseload forecasting which is why we have a huge waiting list for services. No assessments have been done for those waiting so we don’t even know what their needs are. It’s time legislators fixed this inequity. We need forecasting for the people waiting so they can at least have a case manager to assess their need and help them find some supports.
