Wisconsin Civil Rights Compliance
Wisconsin’s Civil Rights Compliance Requirements, released in November 2017, describe what entities receiving federal funds from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), the Department of Children and Families (DCF), and the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) must do to ensure nondiscrimination in service delivery. This includes providing access to individuals with limited English proficiency and individuals with disabilities.

Designed for all health care professionals who receive Medicaid reimbursements or other federal funds through Wisconsin DHS, DCF, or DWD, this one-hour webinar will help participants navigate the new requirement to ensure their organizations comply with CRC requirements and meet key deadlines.
