STAR Services provides free customized support (training and consulting) to HCBS waiver providers on topics such as:
- Community access and engagement

To be eligible, HCBS providers must have a licensed site (DT&H site, Adult Day Services site, Day Support Services site, registered or licensed Housing with Services site, Family Foster Care home, Community Residential Setting home, etc.) Services provided to a person in their own home or family home do not qualify for this free support.
This customized support is to help providers deliver services that support choice and autonomy for people who receive HCBS services.
