This comes to us from the MRT.
Authorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), New York State’s Balancing Incentive Program (BIP) has expanded the State’s Aging and Disability Resource Centers (NY Connects) to broaden the populations for which it provides information, assistance and linkage to Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS).
To increase the access to LTSS as an alternative to institutional care, New York State Office of the Aging (NYSOFA) has issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for a BIP funding opportunity to partner with NY Connects. Up to six Independent Living Centers (ILCs) and/or community-based organizations will be chosen in six regions across the State.
The RFA was issued on August 25th, 2016. Submission of applications is through Grants Gateway.
