A free, monthly webinar series focusing on PUNS (Prioritization of Urgency of Need for Services) selection to help families and self-advocates plan and prepare

Grab a sandwich and join The Arc of Illinois Ligas Family Advocate Program via Zoom for “Know Your Options” on May 19  from 12 to 1 p.m. This webinar is held virtually on the third Thursday of each month.

Families and self-advocates should join us if they received a 2021 letter of early notification from the Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) regarding a likely PUNS (Prioritization of Urgency of Need for Services) or were selected from the PUNS list in the summer of 2021.

Webinars will focus on several core areas including:

  • Introduction to the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver
  • Service and support options after an award of funding
  • Preparation needed for upcoming PUNS selection
  • Resources to assist in planning

Each session will provide a presentation and a 30-minute question-and-answer discussion.

Register for this webinar on The Arc website.

This webinar is also held in Spanish on the second Friday of each month.  Register for “Conoce Tus Opciones!” on June 10 from 12 to 1 p.m.
