Welcome to the Housing Capacity Building Initiative for Community Living project website.

Our vision: To create sustainable, collaborative relationships
among Housing and Human Service Agencies.

HHS Secretary Sebelius recently announced the Housing Capacity Building Initiative for Community Living project to assist older adults and those with chronic conditions who are at risk of institutionalization or who currently receive care in institutional settings in finding appropriate housing to live more independent lives. The landmark project joins the Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Health and Human Services (HHS), under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Money Follows the Person (MFP) Rebalancing Demonstration, to assist federal, state and local agencies and community partners to create a sustainable, collaborative system between housing and human services agencies.
