State Program Membership

Program membership is available to state agencies that administer, or seek to administer, self direction programs.  We offer an open program membership option (Tier 1), which includes 2 hours of technical assistance. This option is available to state agencies at no cost.

We also offer higher tiers of program membership for state agencies who seek more intensive technical assistance. Tier placement will be determined by the number of technical assistance hours required by the state.
