Indiana PASRR Program Improvements - Part II

A PDF copy of the presentation slides is available at the bottom of this page.

The September Indiana PTAC webinar is Part II of the broader state initiative to improve its PASRR process. A key feature of their improvement effort is the recognition that PASRR shares many goals associated with the No Wrong Door initiative in the state. The webinar will include discussion on how these two distinct initiatives share common values and goals. The webinar will help states understand the lessons Indiana learned in connecting the NWD and PASRR initiatives.
