Block/Options Funding

A block grant is a large sum of money granted by the national government to a regional government with provisions as to the way it is to be spent.  In Pennsylvania, this grant combined with proceeds from the Pennsylvania state lottery may be used to provide home and community habilitation services to individuals who do not qualify for Aging Waiver services.

Eligibility for Block/Option Funding is determined by the local Area Agency on Aging in the county where the individual resides.
