National Consortium for Health Systems Development

building sustainable partnerships for lasting systems change

Overview: State-to-State Technical Assistance

The National Consortium for Health Systems Development (NCHSD) is a partnership of states that have joined together to assist other state agencies, legislatures, consumers and advocates in their efforts to build systems that support competitive employment for individuals with disabilities.

The primary means for achieving this goal is through state-to-state information sharing, individualized technical assistance, and the dissemination of best practices to a broad array of involved stakeholders in states around the country.

The NCHSD partnership was made possible through a provision in the Ticket to Work & Work Incentives Improvement Act (TWWIIA) through the Medicaid Infrastructure Grant (MIG) program. State learning and dissemination requirements of the Medicaid Infrastructure Grants are achieved through partnership in the NCHSD technical assistance center.

NCHSD Mission Statement

NCHSD is a freestanding, state-driven forum for information sharing and innovation that improves employment policy by facilitating collaboration between and across local, state, and federal experts.
