CCE Capital Expansion

The CCE program has made $570 million available for capital expansion projects, including acquisition, construction, and rehabilitation of residential care settings. Grantees may be approved to use a portion of these funds to establish a capitalized operating subsidy reserve (COSR) for projects, available for use for up to 5 years.

CCE Preservation Funds

The CCE program is providing $249 million to preserve licensed care settings that currently serve the target population. This consists of $107 million for Operating Subsidy Payment funds ($55 million appropriated in FY 2021-22 and $52 million FY 2022-23) as well as $142.5 million in Capital Project funds to preserve existing licensed facilities serving the SSI/SSP and CAPI population that are in need of critical repairs or required upgrades. Both funds aim to prevent facility closure, which could result in residents exiting to homelessness.
