Vermont’s Aging Disabilities Resource Connections (ADRC) initiative provides people of all ages, disabilities, and incomes with the information and support they need to make informed decisions about long term services and supports. ADRC builds on the infrastructure of eight ‘core partners’. These core partners include the five Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), the Vermont Center for Independent Living (VCIL), the Brain Injury Association of Vermont (BIAVT), and Vermont 211.
The ADRC provides a wide variety of assistance to consumers, their caregivers, and their families to help Vermonters achieve their individual goals. The VT ADRC supports “no wrong door” access to long-term services and supports- reducing the need to contact multiple agencies in order to get the assistance they need, when they need it.
The ADRC is actively engaged in several pilot projects as part of its Enhanced Options Counseling Grant (EOC) including a Medicaid Reimbursement Pilot, Care Transitions Pilot and the ADRC Veterans Independence Program (VIP). Vermont ADRC is supported with federal funds from the Administration on Community Living, No Wrong Door initiative.
