    Join the Direct Care Workforce Strategies Center Webinar Series Kick Off and hear from leadership across the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Labor on this important initiative, and how your state can benefit from various technical assistance opportunities.

    Low wages, lack of benefits, limited opportunities for career growth, and other factors have resulted in a long-standing shortage of critical professionals who provide care. That shortage reached crisis levels during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues today, with more than three-quarters of service providers declining new participants and more than half cutting services. We must build the nation’s capacity to support community living by expanding and strengthening the direct care workforce.

    In this webinar the Direct Care Workforce Strategies Center will provide technical assistance to states and service providers while facilitating collaboration with stakeholders to improve the recruitment, retention, training, and professional development of members of the direct care workforce.

    In this webinar participants will be able to:

    • Gain access to tools and training to assist state systems and service providers and support the development and coordination of policies and programs that contribute to a stable, robust direct care workforce.
    • Network with peers and share lessons learned and promising systems-change practices through learning collaboratives between state systems, including Medicaid, aging, disability, and workforce agencies; service providers; and disability, aging, and labor stakeholders.
    • Apply practices for delivering person-centered support and services for people living in the community.
