In response to the Governor's Executive Order, the Minnesota Olmstead Subcabinet authorized workgroups to explore five topics. The workgroups began meeting in June 2021.
Each group includes State Agency staff, service providers and people with disabilities who can share life experiences on the topic. The groups will explore ideas for about nine months and then make recommendations to the Subcabinet.
