2024 IDD Group Home Provider Report

Above you will find the updated provider survey report conducted by the 3 IDD associations to encompass system experience subsequent to the implementation of rate increases for direct care workers that became effective September 1, 2023.  This report was sent to the HHSC Executive Commissioner on April 23rd, 2024, and covers providers’ experiences and challenges in delivering quality services amid the workforce crisis during the first 5 months of FY 2024.  Where possible the report compares the most recent data to data the 3 associations previously collected.
In the communication to the HHSC Executive Commissioner the 3 associations requested to meet with her and other agency leadership to discuss the report in greater detail.  Know that the report will be posted on the Time to Care Coalition website and will be shared with the Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute (TCCRI).
All of these efforts have been made to assist with hopefully getting an increase in direct support worker wages.
