  1. Administration for Community Living U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

  2. "For too long, too many Americans have faced the impossible choice between moving to an institution or living at home without the long-term services and supports they need. The goal of the new Administration for Community Living will be to help people with disabilities and older Americans live productive, satisfying lives." - Secretary Kathleen Sebelius

  3. Overview • This new HHS Operating Division brings together the Administration on Aging (AoA), the Office on Disability (OD) and the Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) • This single agency is charged with developing policies and improving supports for seniors and people with disabilities.

  4. Why Is This Important? • The common interests of the aging and disability populations have been recognized at the local and state levels. • The mechanisms for providing supports that facilitate community living have been brought together into agencies that serve both populations. • Yet at the federal level, policy development, community outreach and program implementation related to aging and disability across the lifespan was fragmented across HHS.

  5. Background • In 2009, on the 10th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark Olmstead decision, President Obama announced the Year of Community Living. • He directed the HHS and HUD Secretaries to work together to identify ways to improve access to housing, community supports, and independent living for people with disabilities.

  6. Background • In 2009 HHS Secretary Sebelius established an interagency Coordinating Council co-led by the Director of the Office on Disability and the Assistant Secretary on Aging. • Through the Community Living initiative, stakeholders and states have been engaged, investments made to improve access to housing and critical long-term services and supports; increase in communities that have Aging and Disability Resource Centers and enhanced state participation in the Money Follows the Person program.

  8. Enhanced ADRC Options Counseling Program

  9. ADRC Funding Opportunity Vision • Reflects a joint vision of ACL/OD/CMS/VHA • Includes a robust Options Counseling Program that serves as the front door to LTSS for all populations and all payors • Supports the LTSS rebalancing efforts of both Medicaid and the VHA as well as the ACA/CMMI initiatives that are promoting the integration of health and LTSS

  10. ADRC Funding Opportunity Vision, (continued) • Provides a financially sustainable path for high-performing ADRC programs • Supports the three primary populations served by ACL: older adults, persons with physical disabilities and person with intellectual and developmental disabilities. • Establish a single set of program specs for the CMS NWD/SEP and ACL ADRCs

  11. ADRC Funding Opportunity Goals • Strengthening the capacity of the ADRC Options Counseling Program to serve people of all ages, income levels and disabilities by adopting a “No Wrong Door” approach that operationally involves a wide array of community agencies and organizations. • Rapidly diffusing trained and certified ADRC Options Counselors throughout the funded states, and building stronger partnerships between health and LTSS systems to reduce unnecessary readmissions and promote improved health, better care and lower costs.

  12. ADRC Funding Opportunity Goals(continued) 3. Developing financially sustainable ADRC models that includes revenue from multiple public programs (including Medicaid, Medicare, the Older Americans Act, the VHA and other programs) to cover expenses plus margin. 4. Adopting national performance and outcome standards and aligning data collection and reporting methods across LTSS payers within a state to minimize administrative burden and support continuous quality improvement. The funded states will participate in a 6 month collaborative process with ACL, CMS, and VHA to develop a nationally directed evaluation.
