Proposed research questions to be pursued will include:
- What is the impact of OAA funded HCBS programs and
- What is the impact of OAA services alone or in combination with services paid for by other sources?
- What is the impact of service mix and intensity on outcomes of interest? What subgroups had the most favorable outcomes?
