Healthier At Home

About the Healthier at Home Program

The California Department of Aging in 2024 will launch the Healthier at Home Pilot Program, an eight-county effort to establish and evaluate aging-in-place pilots for older adults in California.

In 2022, the California state budget authorized $12.5 million to fund the pilot program in Contra Costa, Fresno, Orange, Riverside, Sacramento, San Diego, Shasta, and Sonoma. Per the budget bill (AB 2548), CDA will select pilot sites in senior housing developments (as described in Sec 51.2 and 51.3 of the Civil Code). At each pilot site, registered nurses and community health workers will provide health system navigation, post-acute care transition support, medical education, wellness coaching, and other services to help residents live in the home of their choosing.

CDA in 2023 is designing the parameters of the pilot. It expects to award grants to approximately eight organizations – one in each county – to operate the pilots. Applicants may include affordable senior housing sites, including HUD funded housing public housing, and mixed funded affordable housing buildings. It expects to release a Request for Application in late 2023.

Once the grants are awarded in early 2024, CDA expects to operate the pilots over two years, from July 2024 to June 2026.

CDA will evaluate the outcomes of the pilot and share findings with the Legislature and on its public website.
