In October 2020, the Minnesota Olmstead Subcabinet created workgroups to research ways to better serve people with disabilities in five critical areas. Each group will make recommendations to the Subcabinet based on their research. You can read more about why the workgroups were formed on this page: Minnesota Olmstead Plan Workgroups
