Technical Assistance Exchange Home Page print


Welcome to the Technical Assistance Exchange!


The U.S. Administration for Community Living, which includes the Administration on Aging, sponsors this Exchange to make information and resources available to states and community organizations. ACL is committed to supporting states' efforts to develop and sustain a person-centered, self-directed national long term supports and services system. This system should effectively assist consumers with identifying and accessing a range of home and community based resources that maintain individual independence. This website provides a forum to allow a diverse community of stakeholders involved in making changes to their long term services system to exchange ideas, knowledge, and best practices.

VD-HCBS in the News!
The Columbus Dispatch recently featured the success of the VD-HCBS program in Ohio. Caregivers Help Ill Veterans Stay at Home is an article highlighting how the program helps preserve the independence and dignity of veterans by allowing them to control the care they receive. It includes stories of some veterans who have been able to remain in their homes with support provided through VD-HCBS.
