The task force was originally established by House Enrolled Act 1102 in the 2017 session of the Indiana General Assembly and is chaired by Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch. Meetings were held around the state in 2018 for the purpose of gathering input and preparing a comprehensive plan for implementation of community-based services provided to people with intellectual and other disabilities. The final report can be found here.

Additionally, the task force was reauthorized during the 2019 session by HEA 1488 and, going forward, will meet at least twice a year through 2025 to receive an update regarding the implementation of the task force’s final report recommendations and if any legislative changes are needed to accomplish what is set forth in the recommendations.
