From what I understand, some congregate care facilities (independent living, assisted living) accept Medicaid, and some don't. Does anyone who has experience with congregate care have an idea if a city can require, thru a development agreement or affordable housing requirement, that a congregate care facility be required to accept Medicaid, at least up to a certain percentage of its units? I could see this working in two ways:
a) If a city that doesn't have inclusionary zoning requires this through the development review process - perhaps by ordinance?
b) If a city that has inclusionary zoning, would waive this requirement on congregate care so long as they agree to accept Medicaid (perhaps capped at up to xx% of their residents, for example?)
