Colorado No Wrong Door

Colorado

~~“In September 2015, Colorado secured a three-year implementation grant from the federal Administration on Community Living (ACL) to develop a model for implementing a No Wrong Door (NWD) system statewide.  A NWD system that provides a seamless entry point system for all individuals seeking long-term services and supports (LTSS), regardless of age, disability or pay source.  The objective is that the system also addresses many of the major challenges currently experienced by individuals seeking LTSS.  In March 2017, four proposals were selected to serve as regional pilot sites (Pilot Sites) over a two-year period.  The Pilot Sites will test and refine various tools and approaches to carry out the functions of a NWD system as articulated by the federal Administration on Community Living (ACL).  The Pilot Sites launched summer 2017 and will help Colorado determine how to create a single NWD system model to be implemented statewide, following the end of the pilot period.”
