If you cannot remember the name of your intake worker, we can usually look that up for you. You are also always welcome to update the status of your needs.

DSPD will send you a Notice of Agency Action and Hearing Rights Form any time a decision is made affecting your services. That form spells out your options for appealing a decision made by DSPD.
Typically all decisions from DSPD, give people two options: (1) You may take advantage of the Division Resolution Process; or (2) You have a right to proceed directly to an Informal Hearing before the Department of Human Services. In some cases you may also have the right to proceed directly to a Formal Hearing before the Department of Health.
Please contact DSPD immediately if you have misplaced or have not received a Notice of Agency Action and Hearing Rights Form in the mail, following a decision affecting your services.
Please contact us at our toll-free number 1-800-837-6811 or 1-844-275-3773. Or email Brenda Carlisle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Services are provided to those with the most critical needs first when funding is available. DSPD receives funding through appropriations from the legislature. More often than not, the Division is not able to offer immediate services to eligible individuals so they are placed on the waiting list. Please express your needs to your Intake Worker or call 1-844-ASK-DSPD or 1-844-275-3773 to explain your situation and see what options you may have.
