Regional Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (ICF/IID)

The South Dakota Department of Human Services (DHS) is requesting proposals to select one or more qualified providers to receive funding to aid in the establishment of small private Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (ICF/IIDs) in the eastern and/or western sides of South Dakota. 

The regional facilities will be populated by 16-18 current residents (men and/or women) of SDDC who wish to transition to one of the new locations.  These will likely be long-term placements.  Proceeding initial occupancy when a vacancy occurs, the bed may be filled based off of agency admission criteria. New admissions may either be filled with another individual wishing to move from SDDC, or from other referral sources.  Respondents may propose any option totaling less than 8 beds in one facility (i.e. 3 x 3 duplex, 4 x 4 duplex, 6-bed home, two 4-bed homes, two 6-bed homes).

 

cONTINUUM OF CARE PROJECT 

In January 2020, a consultant began assessing the state's current continuum of care to identify strengths and opportunities to best support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).  As a department, we are committed to providing individuals with I/DD with the ability and opportunity to live in the most integrated setting based on their aspirations, family connections, needs and other individual choices. The consultant's report is complete and includes a series of recommendations that will increase access to services within the state.The final report is available here
