HHS and HUD Community Living Partnership to Expand Housing Options for People with Disabilities Including Older Adults

Introduction

As part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Community Living Initiative, this special Open Door Forum focuses on the historic partnership between the HHS and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to explore how affordable housing with supportive services can enhance the ability of adults with disabilities, including older adults, to live in the community.  During this session, participants will learn about the CMS Money Follows the Person initiative as well as a new HUD housing voucher program and how these two programs are working together to support community living.  Following the presentation, the telephone lines will be opened to allow participants time to ask questions.
