 Summary Analysis

Aging and Disability Services Administration continues to increase the proportion of aging and disabled clients served in the community. ADSA continues to use grants, demonstration projects, and waivers to increase the reach of community services to clients with specialized care needs.

Increasing the proportion of the aging and disabled caseload served in community-based settings is a measure of the state’s ability to support individual choice and self direction by enabling clients to remain in their own homes and communities wherever possible.
