The Promoting Independence Plan is Texas' comprehensive response to the Supreme Court's 1999 Olmstead decision, but also outlines a vision and guiding principle for the Health and Human Services Commission to provide a system of holistic services and supports that foster independence and self-determination for people with disabilities so that they may be able to live fully integrated into their chosen communities. The goals of the 2022 PIP reflect several key areas essential to achieving this vision.
The Promoting Independence Plan reports on the status of the implementation of a plan to ensure appropriate care settings for persons with disabilities, and the provision of a system of services and supports that foster independence and productivity, including meaningful opportunities for a person with a disability to live in the most appropriate care setting.
