As of December 1, 2010, Michigan is Institution Free for Persons with Developmental Disabilities and has No One Living in a Public or Private ICF/MR.
Michigan is the largest state (population over 10,000,000) to have accomplished either task! And one of only two states to have accomplished both! While we recognize that we have much yet to do, a moment to celebrate and give thanks to all who contributed to this achievement is in order.
Congratulations to everyone who has been a part of this monumental accomplishment!
