ODP Announcement 22-089 reports that the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has developed two brief surveys for Community Participation Support providers to collect information on current system capacity. The first survey is meant to collect current data from Community Participation Services (CPS) providers on CPS capacity across the ODP service system. The second survey is meant to collect current data on individuals who are authorized to receive CPS across the ODP service system but are not receiving the service.

ODP will send each provider a list of MCIs with less than 5% CPS utilization, if there are any associated with their MPI, to assist with information gathering.

Important note to all CPS Providers: Providers must contact individuals and families, or the assigned SC, when the reason for less than 5% utilization is unknown.

The first survey regarding system capacity will be available Monday, August 8, 2022, and will close Monday, August 22, 2022.

The second survey to collect individual-specific information will be available Monday, August 15, 2022, and will close Thursday, September 15, 2022.

ODP will release these surveys no more than once per quarter.

Attachment 1 — ODP CPS Survey 1: Service System Capacity Questions
Attachment 2 — ODP CPS Survey 2: Authorized Services Questions

Any questions regarding the surveys should be directed to the appropriate regional CPS lead.
