Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities

Family Care Program (Follow-Up Review)

In the family care program, the Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (OMRDD) oversees care provided to disabled individuals who do not require the intensive level of care provided by OMRDD's developmental centers. The primary care is provided by non-family members in private homes, where the disabled individuals live. In our prior audit report 95-S-139, we found that improvements could be made in the procedures used to monitor program care, screen providers, train providers, and administer loans intended to help providers either acquire new homes or improve existing homes to meet program standards. In our follow-up review, we found that considerable progress has been made by OMRDD officials in implementing the recommendations contained in our prior report.
