Providing Person-Centered Institutes for Transition

Initiative Description

The Department of Rehabilitation secured $10M to establish the Community Living Fund Program which advances the governor’s Master Plan for Aging (MPA) and the Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) No Wrong Door model by expanding the capacity of disability and aging services and programs to provide person-centered institutional transition and diversion services for people of all ages and with any type of disability who do not qualify for existing services. 

Lessons Learned/Replication

The Department of Rehabilitation will work with a statewide network of eligible disability and aging service providers who have a demonstrated ability to provide institutional transition and diversion services, including the procurement of assistive technology, durable medical equipment, and home modifications within the Community Living Fund Program. Up to 50 nonprofit organizations will collaborate to provide these services.
