CMS Launches ARPA HCBS Webpage

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has launched a new landing page on for state Medicaid agencies and stakeholders to access information about states’ plans to enhance, expand, and strengthen home and community-based services across the country using new Medicaid funding made available by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP).

The site allows state administrators and stakeholders to view states’ ARPA programs and activities to identify innovative approaches that can support home and community-based services and improve capacity building and infrastructure in their area by drawing inspiration from other states. The webpage includes states’ ARP section 9817 spending plans and narratives, letters issued to states on their spending plans and narratives, and other important information related to the implementation of ARP section 9817.
