Advancing independence, integration, and inclusion throughout life

The Administration for Community Living was created around the fundamental principle that older adults and people of all ages with disabilities should be able to live where they choose, with the people they choose, and with the ability to participate fully in their communities.

By funding services and supports provided primarily by networks of community-based organizations, and with investments in research, education, and innovation, ACL helps make this principle a reality for millions of Americans.

About Community Living
All people, regardless of age or disability, should be able to live independently and participate fully in their communities and have the right to make choices and control the decisions in and about their lives.
Housing and Services Resource Center
Created for people working in the networks that provide HCBS, housing services, mental health services, and others that help people live independently. The goal is to foster cross-sector partnerships in order to streamline access to services, better leverage resources, and ultimately expand community living.
