Community Care Expansion Program – Capital Expansion Grant Outreach

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) is in the process of reviewing applications received to date for its Community Care Expansion (CCE) program Capital Expansion funds. Together with Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. (AHP), the CCE third-party administrator, CDSS looks forward to beginning the awards process soon.  

$570 million was made available through the CCE Capital Expansion Grants Program. As of July 1, 2022, over 120 applications requesting more than $1.3 billion in CCE Capital Expansion Grant funding across all seven geographic regions in California have been submitted. The applications represent a diverse range of project types, in an effort to support the expansion of adult and senior care facilities and residential care settings for some of the most vulnerable Californians. These projects will expand the state’s housing and care continuum, helping to ensure better treatment outcomes and to prevent the cycle of homelessness and unnecessary institutionalization. 

As the review process continues, CDSS and AHP will begin reaching out to Capital Expansion applicants by email, as needed, to clarify components of the application and/or request additional documentation related to the CCE project. Applicants that receive a request for clarification are encouraged to review the information promptly and contact with any questions.  

Applications for CCE Capital Expansion Grants are accepted on a project-by-project basis. They are being reviewed thoroughly in the order they were received and will be funded on an ongoing, rolling basis until funds are exhausted.
