HHS, HUD, and USDA Issue Guidance on Improving Accessibility for Older Adults and People with a Disability

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Department of  Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued an Information Bulletin to provide state Medicaid agencies, state and local housing agencies, state and local public health agencies, and other health and housing entities with information to better understand existing federal resources and programs that are intended to improve health and housing outcomes in rural America. These resources may address reducing physical environmental barriers in the home, increasing safety, minimizing the risk of falls, and supporting a person’s ability and desire to remain in his or her own home.
This Bulletin also supports the HHS Rural Health Task Force, an HHS-wide effort on improving health care and access for rural America. This includes the efforts by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), to improve health care in rural America, by leveraging collaborative partnerships, awareness campaigns, and grant programs both on a federal level, and at a regional, state, and local level.
