Project Overview

Roads to Community Living is a demonstration project funded by a "Money Follows the Person" grant. The grant was received by Washington State from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Learn more about CMS and "Money Follows the Person" grants.

The purpose of the Roads to Community Living demonstration project is to investigate and test what services and support will successfully help people with complex, long-term care needs transition from institutional to community settings.

Services and supports from the Roads to Community Living demonstration project that prove successful will be used to help shape recommended changes to Washington State's long-term care system. This will result in more people with complex long-term care needs being able to remain independent or transition into community settings in Washington State.
