Introducing a Framework for Assessing and Tracking the Performance of Benefits Planning Services
Many MIGs fund benefits planning services. In consultation with state and federal experts, NCHSD developed a framework for MIGs to use to help ensure benefits planning services that they fund are high quality, effective and good value for money. The framework is supported by a set of specific criteria in six key performance areas and a sample quarterly report. Together, these documents are a starting place for MIGs and providers to discuss and negotiate a performance monitoring system that improves the quality of services to people with disabilities. Download the framework and supporting documents with the links below.
Conferences and Webinars
NCHSD has hosted several conference and teleconference opportunities for MIG staff and others stakeholders to discuss and learn about benefits and work incentives planning issues and infrastructure. Most recently, a March 14 webinar entitled Funding Work Incentive Training with a Purpose: Two State Initiatives featured West Virginia and Pennsylvania, two states that have worked closely with NCHSD to develop training curriculum and events that provide substantive knowlede on the public benefits programs and their work incentives, and teach specific ways to use this knowledge to support beneficiaries.
