Veterans Directed-Home and Community Based Services Overview (VD-HCBS)
In 2011, ARIS Solutions partnered with the VA and Vermont Association of Area Agencies on Aging to develop the VD-HCBS program in Vermont. This program, also named the Veterans Independence Program (VIP), quickly grew from a pilot to 7 times its original size four years later. Because of the great successes with the VD-HCBS program in Vermont, ARIS Solutions is also now partnering with Iona Senior Services in Washington D.C., and the Independent Living Center ADRC located on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. As these programs continue to grow and new opportunities develop in other states, ARIS Solutions hopes to continue its involvement with VD-HCBS programs to provide Veteran’s and their families the Financial Management Services they need to continue care in their home.
