Real Choice Systems Change Grants for Community Living: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is inviting proposals for grants totaling up to $35 million of these funds. States and others, in partnership with their disability and aging communities, may submit proposals aimed at building infrastructure that will result in effective and enduring improvements in community long-term support systems. These systemic changes are designed to enable children and adults of any age who have a disability or long-term illness to: a) Live in the most integrated community setting appropriate to their individual support requirements and preferences; b) Exercise meaningful choices about their living environment, the providers of services they receive, the types of supports they use and the manner by which services are provided; and c) Obtain quality services in a manner as consistent as possible with their community living preferences and priorities. People of any age who have a disability or long-term illness, as do most other Americans, generally express the same desire to live in the community. They express a desire to live in their own homes, make their own decisions about daily activities, work, learn, and maintain important social relationships. They express a desire to contribute and participate in their communities and family life.
