CDSS Receives Over 120 Applications Totaling $1.3 Billion for Newly Created CCE Program

California is making significant investments in supporting seniors and adults with disabilities to live safely in the community. Earlier this year, the California Department of Social Services announced $805 million available through its Community Care Expansion Program to fund the acquisition, construction and rehabilitation of residential adult and senior care settings that serve applicants and recipients of SSI/SSP and CAPI, including people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

$570 million was made available through the CCE Capital Expansion Grants Program, announced in a joint Request for Applications with the Department of Health Care Services, Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP).

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.

Region Applications Received Total Funding Requested
Balance of State 4 $9,455,740
Bay Area $25 $340,771,793
Central Coast 3 $8,667,238
Los Angeles 24 $245,347,045
Sacramento Area 6 $27,760,891
San Joaquin Valley 18 $70,153,911
Southern California 43 $629,931,352

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.

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