The Community-based Care Transitions Program (CCTP), created by Section 3026 of the Affordable Care Act, tests models for improving care transitions from the hospital to other settings and reducing readmissions for high-risk Medicare beneficiaries.

For CCTP grants, CMS gives preference to Administration on Aging (AoA) grantees that provide care transition interventions in conjunction with multiple hospitals and practitioners and/or entities that provide services to medically-underserved populations, small communities, and rural areas.  For more on the CMMI program click here.
