North Carolina General Statute 143B-181.1(a)(11) establishes a Home and Community Care Block Grant (HCCBG) for Older Adults to be administered by the North Carolina Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS).
The Home and Community Care Block Grant, effective July 1, 1992, is comprised of funding for in-home and community based services currently available through the DAAS as well as a portion of funding targeted for in-home and community based services previously administered by the North Carolina Division of Social Services.
Older Americans Act funds constitutes approximately 45% of HCCBG funding and are intended to develop and enhance comprehensive and coordinated community based systems of services, opportunities and protections for older adults. Future funds appropriated by the General Assembly for this purpose will also be included in the HCCBG.
