Information Brief: Person-Centered Planning and Supports Budgets
HSRI’s intellectual and developmental disabilities team created an information brief that describes the person-centered planning and supports budgeting processes, and illustrates how the two may be integrated.

Person-centered thinking and planning can help groups create these personalized supports; it’s a process that brings people together to help a person with a disability discover what he or she would like to do in the future and create a plan to help achieve it.
