Design of a Demonstration of Coordinated Housing, Health and Long-Term Care Services and Supports for Low-Income Older Adults. VIII. Potential Selection Criteria for Demonstration Communities


The following could serve as potential selection criteria for demonstration communities:

  • Large numbers of older adults living in subsidized housing.

  • Large numbers of older adults whose incomes would qualify them to live in subsidized housing in close proximity to subsidized senior housing.

  • Strong network of aging services and medical care providers with a history of working together.

  • High proportion of seniors with chronic health conditions, frequent use of health care providers and disabilities/impairments.

  • Communities in states with a commitment to flexible spending for HCBS.

  • Communities in states where the housing and services agencies have some experience working together and/or there is evidence of a commitment to affordable senior housing.

  • Communities that are taking advantage of ACA and other demonstration opportunities (e.g., ACOs, medical or health homes, transitional care demonstrations, independence at home, etc.).
