Who Can Receive Technical Assistance from NCAPPS?

For up to 100 hours per year for up to three years, NCAPPS provides technical assistance to state agencies, territorial governments, and tribal governments to advance person-centered thinking, planning and practice to support people with disabilities and older adults with long-term service and support needs.

In the spring of 2019, we began accepting applications for technical assistance—with the capacity for 15 States to receive up to 100 hours per year for three years. There was a positive response, and 33 applicants submitted technical assistance requests. After meeting with all the applicants, we selected a final list to receive technical assistance. Each State developed a technical assistance plan that outlines the goals and objectives they hope to achieve with support from NCAPPS and national subject matter experts. A summary of those goals and objectives is available for download here.
