NASHVILLE, TN — The National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices and Systems (NCAPPS) has recently opened a new application opportunity to provide technical assistance (TA) free for all to chosen states, territories or tribes for over a hundred hours per year, within the span of two years. NCAPPS assists states, tribes and territories to alter their long-term care service and support systems in order to implement U.S. Department of Health and Human Services policy on person-centered thinking, planning, and practices.
The TA recipients will work with national subject matter experts to cultivate a TA plan and obtain the results. The NCAPPS team at the Human Services Research Institute will collaborate with those experts to coordinate and deliver TA. For more information about the current NCAPPS TA cohort, along with summaries of TA activities and products, visit the page at Our Initiatives.
The webinar in June included four of the states from the first cohort of NCAPPS TA and showcased what those states had learned from their TA, as well as how they plan to utilize those learnings to continue making their systems more people-centered. The application is the first of two phases in applying for TA. After submitting this application, within two weeks, the NCAPPS team will contact applicants to finalize the TA request during a second phase.
This phase involves a videoconference between the NCAPPS team and the applicant to collect more information, investigate intended outcomes in greater detail, and confirm that the applicant is able to effectively advance needed change. The applications deadline is on July 30, 2021.
