For the first time in more than five years, existing North Carolina PACE programs have an opportunity to expand into new communities across North Carolina.

The State of North Carolina has issued a Request for Applications (RFA) and will consider the expansion of up to three existing programs. Currently, PACE is available to North Carolinians in only about a third of the state.

Applications are due November 20, 2018, and the state will decide by December 10, 2018.

The expansion is a direct result of legislation secured by the NC PACE Association. “This is a fine finishing touch to the first decade of PACE in North Carolina. Our education and advocacy to promote the critical work of PACE is finally yielding results,” Executive Director Linda Shaw of the NC PACE Association said in an email to stakeholders and partners.

“We must expand PACE into more communities and increase access to this wonderful program,” she added.
