APD to Postpone Wait List Workshops

· The Agency for Persons with Disabilities is postponing its wait
list rule workshops scheduled in August and September.
· APD has been gathering information about the new law that was
approved by the Legislature to take effect July 1, 2010. The law
reprioritizes the ranking of people waiting for services from APD.
· The agency wants to further develop its policy options before
having workshops. This will help the agency have better discussions
with and provide answers to questions from customers, families, and
advocates at the rule workshops.
· If you would like to send in written comments, please direct

Way, Suite 380, Tallahassee,
