ADvancing States provides technical assistance on a wide variety of issues to support the ability to build and maintain robust long- term services and supports systems. ADvancing States serves as a locus for the exchange of information on state aging and disability programs on promising practices, strategic planning, administrative and regulatory decision points, and administrative structures. Technical assistance consists of surveys and synthesis of findings, organizing state-to-state teleconferences, and reviewing and commenting on state materials.
