    This paper highlights how state-funded home- and community-based services programs in 9 states are supporting low-income older adults and/or people with physical disabilities and their family caregivers to live with maximum independence at home. The paper also features a state’s emerging innovation to provide tailored services and supports for “near poor” older adults and their family caregivers.
