Aging

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is dedicated to promoting safe behaviors of older road users to include individuals age 65 and over who are drivers, passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists.  New Editions provides content management and outreach support to NHTSA for the Clearinghouse for Older Road User Safety (ChORUS).

New Editions assists the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in the national implementation of regulations, particularly in regards to ensuring that beneficiaries receiving home and community-based services (HCBS) live and work in settings that are home and community-based and are integrated into the community. In March 2014, CMS published regulations to improve Medicaid HCBS by providing increased guidance on person-centered planning and by clarifying what protections must be in place when restrictions are imposed on individual rights.

New Editions provides the Office of Performance and Evaluation (OPE) within the Administration for Community Living (ACL) with analysis and technical assistance support. ACL strives to ensure that all people, regardless of age and disability, live with dignity, make their own choices and participate fully in society.

New Editions provides data design and analytical support to the Office of Performance and Evaluation (OPE) in the Administration for Community Living (ACL).

OPE coordinates a range of data collection and analysis activities and disseminates data through a variety of modalities including the AGing, Independence, and Disability (AGID) Program Data Portal.
