The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) Community Care Expansion (CCE) Preservation Program has made 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:
- $107 million has been appropriated for 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
- $142.5 million has been appropriated for 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.
CCE Preservation Funds are 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.
