Multi-Purpose Senior Services Program (MSSP)

The services that may be provided with MSSP funds include:

  • Adult day care/Support Center
  • Housing assistance
  • Chore and personal care assistance
  • Protective supervision
  • Care management
  • Respite
  • Transportation
  • Meal services
  • Social services
