Community Care Expansion (CCE) | Capital Expansion Funding
Funding Targeted at Addressing Unmet Needs
The Community Care Expansion (CCE) program will provide $805 million in funding for acquisition, construction, and rehabilitation to preserve and expand adult and senior care facilities that serve Supplemental Security Income/State Supplementary Payment (SSI/SSP) or Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI) applicants and recipients, including those who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Of that funding, $570 million will be made available for CCE Capital Expansion projects.
As an unprecedented investment in infrastructure, CCE will help California increase the availability of facilities, preserve existing facilities, and expand accessibility to long-term care services and supports. The below map visualizes areas with high need for CCE Capital Expansion funding and gaps in care in the community.
We invite you to click on the interactive map below to view the Unmet Need Score for each county.
Map of Unmet Need
The interactive map below shows the Unmet Need Score of each county. It features a tooltip, which appears when one hovers over a county with a mouse. Click a county to view specific information. The key underneath the map allows one to toggle between views of large (population > 200,000) and small (population < 200,000) counties. Please note: The map yields different scores when the Unmet Need Score is applied to the subset of counties, and this may more accurately reflect the level of need in smaller counties. Tableau’s interactive dashboard may not be accessible to all users. If you use a screen reader, you may need to download the the unmet need scores data tables directly.
About Unmet Need Scoring (UNS)
The Unmet Need Score (UNS) is a weighted measure that is derived from ranking an area’s need across multiple dimensions, from least need to most need, with highest-need areas receiving the highest score along that dimension. The rank is used to determine the percentile rank (i.e., the percentage of areas with lesser needs); percentile ranks are weighted and added to create the raw score. Finally, the raw score is rescaled to the range of 0 to 100 (Unmet Need Score (UNS), 2021).
Our Application of the Unmet Need Score
For determining the unmet need for beds in residential facilities (not funded by regional centers) that would accept Supplemental Security Income/State Supplementary Payment (SSI/SSP) recipients, we used three measures of need at the county level: the Point-in-Time (PIT) count of people experiencing homelessness from 2019 (2019 Point-in-Time), the number of facilities not funded by regional centers, and the number of SSI bed matches in a county (Adult Residential Facilities and Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly by County, 2021), weighted at 50%, 25%, and 25%, respectively.
