    How can the grant be used?

    The Community Care Expansion (CCE) Preservation Program consists of two components:

    Operating Subsidy Payments: The intent of Operating Subsidy Payments is to preserve and avoid closing critical residential adult and senior care facilities. These funds can cover an eligible licensed facility’s potential or projected operating deficits, including but not limited to utilities and staff/payroll costs.

    Capital Projects:  Funds can be applied to physical repairs and upgrades on an approved facility’s property, including inside or outside the facility, within its property line. Capital projects can also fund repairs needed to ensure facilities are compliant with licensing standards.

    These are examples of capitol projects the grant money can be used for:

    • HVAC repairs
    • ADA upgrades
    • Roof repairs
