Federal funding for the California Community Transitions (CCT) program and spousal impoverishment expansion has ended effective December 31, 2018. Funding may become available again, depending on federal legislation and whether the state of California is able to continue the programs. Check DRC’s website for more information in the coming months. Spousal impoverishment protections still apply to individuals in nursing facilities and on HCBS waivers. If you are not sure if the protections apply to you, you can contact DRC.
