Register for the webinar.


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.
