    NHT Program

    The NHT program was developed to assist and empower consumers who want to move from a nursing facility back to a home of their choice in the community and help the Commonwealth rebalance its long-term living systems so that people have a choice of where they live and receive services. The NHT program provides the opportunity for individuals and their families or caregivers to be fully informed of all long-term living options, including the full range of home and community-based services, and that they receive the guidance and support needed to make an informed choice about their long-term living services. The program assists individuals in moving out of institutions and to eliminate barriers in service systems so that individuals receive services and supports in settings of their choice.

    Goals and Objectives of the NHT Program

    • To help states like Pennsylvania rebalance their long-term living systems so that people have a choice of where they live and receive services.
    • Enhances opportunities for individuals to move to the community by identifying individuals who wish to return to the community through the Minimum Data Set (MDS) and referrals from family, individuals, social workers, etc.
    • Empowers individuals so they are involved to the extent possible in planning and directing their own transition from a nursing facility back to a home of their choice in the community.
    • Develops the necessary infrastructure and supports in the community by removing barriers in the community so that individuals receive services and supports in settings of their choice.
    • Expands and strengthens collaborations between aging and disability organizations to provide support and expertise to the NHT Program.
