Community Living Exchange Collaborative Clearinghouse
The Community Living Exchange Collaborative (The Exchange) is a joint effort of ILRU (Independent Living Research Utilization), a program of The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research (TIRR), and Rutgers Center for State Health Policy (CSHP). The Exchange is funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) through grants awarded under the Systems Change Community Living Initiative launched in September 2001.
The Exchange Collaborative funds our on-line Clearinghouse, www.hcbs.org. This site assists states and other entities in building systems that provide services and supports that reflect the needs and preferences of individuals of all ages with disabilities. This site is intended to facilitate sharing information, tools, and practical resources across the many states and local entities that are reexamining and redesigning how they provide supports.
