Community Care Expansion Preservation Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA)
The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) Community Care Expansion (CCE) Preservation Program will make noncompetitive allocations available to counties for the preservation of licensed residential and senior care facilities serving applicants and recipients of Supplemental Security Income/State Supplementary Payment (SSI/SSP) or Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI), including those who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Two types of funding are available: $55 million in Operating Subsidy Payments (OSP) to cover potential or projected operating deficits in existing residential adult and senior care facilities so they can avoid closure and $140 million in Capital Project (CP) funding to allow facilities to make essential physical repairs or necessary upgrades to avoid closure or make the facility compliant with licensing standards.
The Preservation Program is one part of the total $805 million CCE program, which was established through Assembly Bill (AB) 172 (Chapter 696, Statutes of 2021). Funds will be allocated to county governments through a non-competitive award process. Counties will design and implement the programs locally and are responsible for disbursing funds to local existing licensed adult and senior care facilities serving qualifying individuals. Information about specific allocation amounts available, broken down by county, is provided in the NOFA.
Counties that have received an allocation from the state must accept or decline OSP and/or CP funds in the web portal by July 15, 2022.
