NCOA leads a coalition of national aging and disability organizations working to advance long-term services and supports for older adults and individuals with disabilities.

Known as the Disability and Aging Collaborative, the coalition formed during health reform and was one of the first coordinated advocacy efforts among the aging and disability communities on long-term services and supports.

The coalition is now focused primarily on enhancing access to home and community-based services (HCBS), rebalancing, and ensuring consumer engagement, protections, and quality in duals integration and managed long-term services and supports (LTSS).
