Proposed rule changes for Section 21 and Section 29 — Public comment period is ending tomorrow at As you may know, the Department utilized the emergency rule-making process for both Section 21 and Section 29, which includes changes such as raising the rates for Section 21 and 29, raising the cap for community and work supports in Section 29, adding shared living as an option to Section 29, and removing employment supports from the Section 29 cap making it a stand-alone service outside of the cap.
