The 2013-2014 Gaps Analysis study was completed in July 2015. The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) contracted with Wilder Research to conduct the study and to assist with streamlining the process of gathering the data. Through this collaboration, the study used surveys and interviews to gather information form counties, tribes, managed care organizations, people receiving services, providers, and stakeholders about their perceptions of the capacity and gaps of the Minnesota services system to support older adults, persons with disabilities, and children, youth or adults living with mental health conditions. The services system includes home and community-based services and continuum of mental health services and supports. This year the Gaps Analysis study included a study to examine critical access to home and community-based services at the local level. DHS contracted with Abt Associates to conduct this one-time study, known as the HCBS Critical Access study.
