Raise your voice for the New Hampshire Home and Community-based Services (HCBS) Assessment and Gap Analysis.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services (BEAS), in partnership with the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI) and the UNH Center on Aging and Community Living, will hold a series of public forums to solicit stakeholder feedback on New Hampshire’s Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) system for older adults and people with disabilities.

Through funding by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) “Money Follows the Person” Demonstration Expansion award, DHHS, with support from HSRI, will evaluate New Hampshire’s long-term services and supports system, including the Choices for Independence waiver, and consider recommendations for ensuring greater system access across all populations and geographic areas of the State.

“New Hampshire has made investments in recent years geared toward enhancing our long-term supports and services,” said DHHS Commissioner Lori Weaver. “We look forward to working with individuals, caregivers, and stakeholders to ensure we are continuing to meet the needs of the people who use long term services and supports, so they can live independently in their communities.”

Once the data collection and analysis are complete, DHHS and HSRI plan to issue a final report in June 2024 that will include actionable recommendations to promote community integration, independence, and a robust system of services and supports for older adults and people with disabilities.

Anyone who has feedback about HCBS access and quality is encouraged to attend a listening session. For additional information about the listening sessions or to provide direct feedback, please email
