HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel Malloy says his administration is awarding grants worth $9 million to help Connecticut's nursing home industry diversify services to meet the changing needs of older residents and people with disabilities.

Malloy says the grants are part of an initiative designed to expand options for long-term services for people who can live safely in their homes, instead of an institution.

The governor says the state's "Strategic Plan to Rebalance Long-term Services and Supports" involves several strategies. They include helping skilled nursing facilities adapt to the growing demand for greater choice about where and how Connecticut residents receive care.

The grants announced Friday represent first-time funding for the initiative. The money will benefit programs based in central Connecticut, New Haven, Torrington, Meriden, West Hartford and Fairfield.
