Transforming State LTSS Access Programs and Functions into A No Wrong Door System for All Populations and All Payers: The U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) have created this funding opportunity for states to start planning and assessing their No Wrong Door System to help people learn about and access the long term services and supports (LTSS) that best meet their needs. These access programs are currently referred to by various names including Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) and No Wrong Door/Single Entry Point (NWD/SEP) Programs and exist to varying degrees of functionality across the nation. For purposes of this funding opportunity, we are using the label "NWD System." A fully operational NWD System, which is administered by a state level governing body, is designed to help individuals and their family caregivers access the right services at the right time in the right setting. It will have capacity to serve people of all ages, disabilities and income levels, including individuals interested in planning for or able to pay for their LTSS needs. It will also streamline eligibility determinations for people appropriate for public LTSS programs and increase access to lower cost community-based alternatives that can help avoid institutional care and preserve personal resources. States will use their NWD System as a key tool for rebalancing their LTSS systems and for making their systems more person-centered, more efficient, and more supportive of community living.As states undergo health system transformation and LTSS rebalancing activities, development of a financially sustainable NWD System is critical to controlling the growth in public expenditures while also ensuring that citizens have ongoing coordinated access to the LTSS that best meet their needs and preferences. States will use this funding opportunity to plan and assess their Administration and Governance of their NWD System which embeds Person Centered Counseling into their statewide LTSS systems. Specific functions which can be found in a NWD System designed for all populations and all payers include: formal linkages with sources of referrals (e.g., Hospitals, Nursing Homes), Person Centered Counseling which would include linking individuals to private pay resources and follow-up, Streamline Access to Public Programs and Administration of the NWD System.These 16 Month Planning & Assessment Grants will help states achieve the following goals by the end of the project period:1. States will identify and describe the Administration and Governance Structure for their NWD System;2. States will identify and describe roles and responsibilities of the following required partners: Designated Governor Staff, State Unit on Aging, Medicaid Agency, State Entity representing Persons with Physical and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities; 3. States will complete and submit information regarding their current capacity of their NWD System through ACL's NWD System Management Tool.
