Focus groups and surveys for the Cash & Counseling program demonstration and evaluation

The Foundation's Cash & Counseling program was designed to provide an expansion of a proven model of consumer-directed supportive services to more states, allowing thousands more older adults and people with disabilities to have choice and control over the care they receive.Under this grant, the investigators will conduct focus groups and surveys in Florida and New Jersey, the two additional states awarded funds to conduct "cash and counseling" demonstrations. The objective of the focus groups and surveys is to assess the willingness of disabled people to participate in the "cash and counseling" demonstration, and to determine the most appealing aspects of the program. Such information will inform the efforts of project staff to market the program to potential client-participants, thus improving chances for achieving the high levels of participation required for an effective demonstration and evaluation.
