The Foundation's Coming Home: Affordable Assisted Living Program, run through the NCB Development Corporation, was designed to undertake the development of rural community-based systems of chronic care. Lack of capital and technical assistance has prevented assisted living facilities, which integrate health and social services, from being built in rural America. The Coming Home Program was created in 1992 to address this problem. Based on the success of the original program and the results of an independent evaluation, the Program will be expanded. The Program will provide technical assistance, grants, and loan funds in up to eight states to: (1) create a more favorable regulatory and reimbursement environment to support affordable assisted living; and (2) work with local nonprofit service providers to develop two or more demonstration projects in each state that integrate affordable assisted living with the larger community-based continuum of care. The Program will also provide more generalized technical assistance to nongrantee states and communities.
