This brief outlines a proposal for an innovative program that assists states with improving their home and community-based services (HCBS) infrastructure. Key goals include strengthening housing, transportation, employment, workforce and caregiver supports in communities across the country with initiatives that address social determinants of health (SDOH), so that persons with disabilities and older adults with disabilities are served where they wish to be served.

During the Community Living Summit held on May 3-4, 2018, the participants came up with a lot of questions about studying autism and living in the community. After the Summit, ASAN thought about what they said and then came up with some more questions.

Together, we came up with seven big questions:

4. How can we help autistic people stay on track?

5. Where should autistic people live?
