The NH School Safety Resource Center is a direct result of the NH Governor’s School Safety Task Force’s recommendation 49 to “establish and maintain a complete and centralized school safety preparedness online resource center to make it easier for schools and interested parties to access relevant information.”
The goal of the New Hampshire School Safety Resource Center is to have a central location of the resources available to assist educators, emergency responders, community organizations, school mental health professionals, families and students in creating safe, positive and successful educational environments for students in all New Hampshire schools.

If you have a family member who receives services through the Developmental Service System of Area Agencies you may have you heard about the Corrective Action Plan (CAP) that NH is under, related to the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). The three1915 (c) waivers affected by this CAP are Developmental Services, Acquired Brain Disorder, and Children’s In-Home Services.
The compliance issues addressed in the CAP focus on conflict of interest between case management and direct service delivery; and compliance with Medicaid billing rules, which allow providers to bill directly to the State.The HCBS Waiver is an essential component for the delivery of community-based services to individuals with disabilities and their families.Without it, the state would not be able to provide these critical services. Half of the funds provided through the HCBS Waiver are state dollars, with an equal match in federal funds.
