Anna Cielinski, a senior policy analyst is quoted extensively about a new fact sheet that offers guidance for states on how to improve their priority of service for poor and hard-to-serve adults.

Among other things, the article notes that "CLASP is recommending that state plans restate legislative language of the priority, offer direction for substantive implementation of the policy, describe how this will be monitored, specify a target percentage for adults served who meet the priority, explain consequences for not implementing the policy and cite any more specific detailed state policy or guidance."
