The Community Care Services Program (CCSP) is a state Medicaid program administered through the Division of Aging (http://aging.dhr.georgia.gov) and the Coastal Georgia Area Agency on Aging (www.coastalgeorgiardc. org). CCSP helps people who are functionally impaired to continue living in their homes and communities. CCSP offers community-based care as an alternative to nursing home placement.
