Abstract

The Cash and Counseling Demonstration and Evaluation (CCDE) tested one of the most autonomous forms of consumer direction for personal assistance services. In the winter of 1996/97, Arkansas, Florida, New Jersey, and New York each received grants to develop and implement CCDE. While Arkansas, Florida, and New Jersey were successful in their efforts of implementing CCDE, New York was unable to do so. Using elements of Hasenfeld and Brock's (1991) political economy policy implementation model, the following sections describe two primary interactions between key policy implementation instruments and internal and external stakeholders that made New York's participation in CCDE not possible. This case study also provides some lessons for other states interested in developing Cash and Counseling models.
