New DSD eList format

Minnesota Department of Human Services

Disability Services Division eList


Jan. 13, 2016

TO: All DSD lead agency and stakeholder eList subscribers
FROM: Disability Services Division 
PURPOSE: To alert subscribers that the format for DSD eLists will look different

Our new look

When you receive eList messages from the DHS Disability Services Division (DSD), you may notice they look different. We are using a new system that will help us communicate more effectively. Our goal is to provide a better experience for subscribers. See the link to the right to manage your subscription.

Stay connected

DSD uses the eList as a way to connect subscribers to new information and resources, such as:

Lead agency and stakeholder eLists

DSD uses two different subscriber lists to communicate our messages.

Lead agency eList

We use the DSD lead agency eList to send announcements to county, tribal, managed care and state workers. You may subscribe to this list with a work e-mail address. DSD approves these subscriptions.

For more information and a link to sign up, see the DSD lead agency eList page in the CBSM.

Stakeholder eList

We use the DSD stakeholder eList to send information by email to a large group of people. Different than the lead agency list, the stakeholder list is open to everyone:

  • Advocates
  • Consumers
  • Counties
  • DHS staff
  • Disability organizations
  • Legislators,
  • Providers
  • Tribes
  • Other interested stakeholders.

For more information and a link to sign up, see the DSD Technical Assistance page and choose "Stakeholder eList."

Sign up or manage DHS subscriptions

If you want to manage your subscriptions or invite your colleagues to receive our notices, please see the manage subscriptions page.

On that page, you can confirm which list(s) you currently subscribe to and choose other lists to follow. 

eList basics

There is no charge to use the DSD electronic mailing lists.

DSD will not use your e-mail address for any other purpose. If you unsubscribe, DSD will delete your e-mail address from the list.

The eList broadcasts announcements only. Subscribers are not able to reply to emails or use the list to provide feedback to DSD.

If you need more information or would like to talk to someone about the announcement, use the contact information provided with each announcement.
