~~“Governor Gina M. Raimondo today announced $500,000 in community enhancement grants to organizations committed to helping older Rhode Islanders and individuals with disabilities thrive in their communities.

The grants are supported with funds from the Executive Office of Health and Human Services' Money Follows the Person program, a federally funded program designed to shift long-term care spending from facility-based care to community-based care. The grants will also support Rhode Islanders with disabilities."

"All Rhode Islanders deserve to live healthy, fulfilling, and purposeful lives in their communities," said Governor Raimondo. "These grants support our goal of shifting Rhode Island's long-term care system toward one that includes a responsive set of community-based services focused on addressing Rhode Islanders' evolving needs."”
