In United States v. North Carolina, the parties have agreed to modify a 2012 settlement agreement resolving allegations of unnecessary segregation of adults with Serious Mental Illness in adult care homes in violation of the integration mandate of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The modification will allow some provisions to expire timely on July 1, 2021, while extending the term of the remainder of the agreement to July 1, 2023. The agreement requires the State to provide permanent supported housing to at least 3,000 target population members at the end of the agreement’s term, including 2,000 individuals discharged from adult care homes, and to make numerous other reforms to its mental health service system.
