Annually, the Tennessee Alliance of Support Coordinators (TASC) recognizes a Support Coordinator in each grand region of the state (East, Middle and West) who demonstrates excellence in the practice of independent support coordination (ISC) services for persons with intellectual disabilities enrolled in the state’s HCBS Medicaid waiver programs. This award is established as a legacy in the memory of the late Linda Maurer, former Executive Director of Neighborhood Network, Inc.
Linda was a well-respected and admired leader among her ISC colleagues. For 13 years, Linda was instrumental in many of the important initiatives undertaken to improve and enhance ISC services for persons with intellectual disabilities and their families in Tennessee. She served in various leadership roles within TASC for many years. TASC is a stronger and more viable association as a result of Linda's contributions and leadership.
