The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Project Update: Consumer Support Grant Program.

Eustis, Nancy.

Policy makers and program administrators are trying a variety of approaches to meet the growing need for long-term care of persons with chronic conditions or disabilities. All but one state now funds consumer-directed in-home services as an alternative to some agency-provided homecare services. Consumer-directed in-home services differ from agency-provided services in that the eligible consumer (or his or her representative) receives a voucher or grant worth an amount comparable to the cost of publicly funded services otherwise provided by the homecare agency. The consumer or representative then purchases needed services or other supports to compensate for functional impairments. Currently there are four consumer-directed homecare programs in Minnesota. In 1997, a project team that included researchers and students from the University of Minnesota and staff from the Minnesota Department of Human services conducted an early evaluation and provided information to consumers of one of these programs, the Consumer Support Grant (CSG) program. This brief report describes the CSG program and summarizes findings and accomplishments of the project.
