District of Columbia Transforming State Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS)/No Wrong Door Grant

Washington DC

2015 NWD System Grantee Summaries:  The coordination of Long-Term Supports and Services (LTSS) in the District of Columbia has been a priority for DC government for several years. DC’s Health and Human Services agencies, in partnership with people in need of LTSS, families, advocates, public/private partners, referral sources and others, will finalize and implement a 3-year plan to transform current systems into a No Wrong Door (NWD) system for all populations and all payers. DC’s goal is to create an LTSS system in which people encounter person- and family centered systems/staff with core competencies that facilitate their connection to formal and informal LTSS, regardless of where they enter the system.
