Minority Applicant Pool System

The Minority Applicant Pool System (MAPS) is an information, referral, consultation, advocacy and placement service for the African-American elderly as well as non-minorities, in need of long-term health care options and placement. Its purpose is to demonstrate and implement a method of improving access to long-term care options and health care services through better coordination and utilization of the existing health and social service systems.

The MAPS provides community-based educational programs designed to disseminate information to African-American and non-minority residents regarding the benefits of knowing the admission requirements and long-term care options. Counseling sessions are conducted to inform potential long-term care residents and their families of the need to prepare and plan for long-term and placement options.
