VAA Redesign meetings

The Department of Human Services (DHS) has contracted with the state’s Management Analysis and Development (MAD) Division to engage stakeholders in the Vulnerable Adult Act (VAA) Redesign process. MAD offers neutral, third-party consultation services. MAD developed the Vulnerable Adult Act Redesign Stakeholder Engagement Process (PDF)  to ensure proposed VAA updates will be brought before diverse stakeholders for review and input throughout SFY20 and help work toward consensus on a redesigned adult protection system. MAD also developed the Adult Protective Services Redesign Project Scope (PDF)  to clarify the focus of this review. While the VAA regulates the reporting of, and investigation into, allegations of maltreatment of vulnerable adults across different settings – including those licensed by the Department of Human Services and the Department of Health – the focus of this review is county and tribal-based Adult Protective Services.
