    State Transition Plan (STP) Assessment

    When a provider opens a new residential setting, you must complete a STP Residential Self-Assessment. Residential settings include group homes, host homes, and shared living homes.

    When a provider opens a new day services setting, you should send an email to DHHS-DD Provider Relations at DHHS.DDProviderRelations@nebraska.gov for a STP Non-Residential Assessment. Day service settings include workshops, hubs, enclaves, and other locations where day services occur.

    For DHHS's plan for home and community-based services, visit the State Transition Plan page.
