Community-Based Services Manual (CBSM)

This manual is a reference tool for lead agencies who administer home and community-based services that support older Minnesotans and people with disabilities. This manual replaces DHS bulletins as the primary means of information dissemination to lead agencies for the Disability Services Division (DSD). The Aging and Adult Services Division (AASD) will continue to disseminate bulletins to lead agencies in addition to updating this manual.
