Despite an unprecedented shortage of affordable and accessible housing, today many low-income older adults and people with disabilities in congregate and institutional settings urgently need to transition to affordable and accessible housing in the community.
This webinar provides strategies and best practices to form partnerships between housing, Medicaid HCBS payers, and community-based services to successfully address housing challenges. These partnerships can enable stakeholders to leverage the unprecedented influx of COVID related funding (CARES Act, Omnibus, and American Rescue/Recovery Plan) for rental assistance and pre/post housing related services and supports, ensuring Medicaid HCBS beneficiaries are housed securely and can actively participate in their community.

About the Webinar Series
The Administration for Community Living (ACL) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) host a monthly webinar series that invites subject matter experts and practitioners from across the home-and-community-based services (HCBS) continuum to share insights and best practices to develop high quality HCBS programs and services.
The home and community-based (HCBS) Medicaid program consists of Medicaid state waiver funded programs that pay for long-term care services and supports in the community primarily for people with disabilities and older adults.
