The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced the availability of $60 million in Affordable Care Act grants for states and communities to help individuals and their caregivers better understand and navigate their health and long-term care options. Funding also can be used to support state Medicaid agencies as they transition individuals from nursing homes to community-based care, along with other activities to better integrate the medical and social services care models. The deadline for applications is July 30, 2010, and grants will be awarded in September 2010.
