Consumer Directed Community Support


"Molly is treated well and respected by all staff. She is comfortable in her new home all thanks to the wonderful staff!" by

Consumer Directed Community Support (CDCS) offers individuals and their families more flexibility and control over how the available financial resources are allocated for their support services. Individuals and their families are able to select who is hired, establish the wage and benefit levels, purchase items needed (within established parameters), and design a schedule that works best for them.
The State of Minnesota makes available a specific amount of money to meet the individual’s support needs. The individual/family works through their case manager to develop a support plan and budget that will utilize the resources to best provide the supports needed. DRCC’s role is to support the individual/family in paying staff and other invoices, billing the State of Minnesota, and assisting in tracking expenditures.
