Howdy! My name is Alex. Recently, I had a conversation with my county board to talk about my needs. We completed the Waiting List Assessment and we discovered I do not have any unmet needs at this time. This means that I will not have any needs in the next 12 months, and I am not at serious risk of harm if no action is taken within 30 days.
After talking it over with my county board...
We have agreed to stay in touch in the months and years ahead in case I have any unmet needs in the
future. Even though I don't have any unmet needs today, my county board is always available to help me find services if that should change.
What happens next?
If my needs change, I should contact my county board as soon as possible to discuss my situation. My county board can link me to services and supports to meet my needs, and if necessary, complete a new assessment at that time.
Will I be put on the waiting list?
NO. I am not put on the waiting list because I do not have any unmet needs at this time. If I was on the waiting list before September 1, 2018, I will be removed.
What rights do I have?
If I disagree with the outcome of my assessment, I have the right to appeal. My county board will give me information about how to make an appeal.
No matter what the outcome of my assessment, if my needs change, I can ask my county board to go through the assessment process again.
