Technical Assistance Exchange Home Page
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.
