Support Planning is a service provided to assist an individual using Consumer Directed Consumer Supports. Support Planning encompasses writing an individual’s Community Support Plan and providing on-going person centered support to implement the Community Support Plan.  Support planners work in conjunction with an individual’s case manager in a team approach to identify services that an individual wants and assure those services are provided in a person centered manner.  Support planners must pass a support certification test provided by the Minnesota Department of Human services that ensures they are knowledgeable about the Consumer Directed Community Support program.  Support planners must re-take and pass the test every two years and are mandated to complete ten hours of training every year.
