Letter from Karen A. Poteet, M.A. Interim Director, Aging Services, Oklahoma Department of Human Services


On October 25, 2017, the Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services notified DHS to submit a revised budget to consider the lost funding.


The revised budget is necessary for DHS to meet the balanced budget requirement of the Oklahoma Constitution.


We regret to inform you DHS must eliminate the ADvantage Waiver effective December 1, 2017. Should the state Legislature act to restore funding for the ADvantage Waiver before December 1, 2017, DHS will notify you immediately.

The letter was sent out to workers to serve as a notice of the intent to eliminate services.
