ADS sub-contracts with local service providers to deliver services to older adults, family caregivers and adults with disabilities. This site includes information on reporting requirements, program standards, and other resources to assist our partners in the community.
Current HSD/ADS Investment Opportunities:
- No current funding opportunities.
Most OAA funded service areas undergo open competitive bid processes every four years. Information on open bid processes will be available on this website, the Washington State Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises (OMWBE), and the Puget Sound Business Journal.
Prospective providers for Medicaid-funded Long Term Services and Supports—such as Adult Day Services, Home Care, COPES Ancillary Services, and Roads to Community Living—should refer to information on ALTSA’s Information for Potential Medicaid Contractors website for qualification and application instructions.Geographic Sub-regions

- North Urban
- East Urban

ADS collects demographic data on all clients who participate in ADS funded programs. The Client Profile Report is an aggregate demographic profile of all clients who received services in a calendar year. This report is completed by service providers on a monthly basis using an on-line tool:
The Client Profile Report Application is updated as of 1/21/15. The login process has changed. The new system uses your email address as your username. Current users will need to setup an account upon first login. Make sure you use your email address ADS has on file.
Once you have created an account, please contact your contract specialist if you need edit rights for your program’s data.
For general questions regarding the application, please contact HSDData@seattle.gov
Aggregate vs. Client Level Profiles
- Depending on the service area, providers submit demographics in either an aggregate format or at the individual client level. See below for the list of service arears and profile types.
- Client Profile Report queries that include more than one aggregate service area, may represent a duplicated client count.
- Queries on service areas that submit client-level data will represent an unduplicated client count.
- Because of the different data types, the system will not allow users to query service areas that include both aggregate and client level data.
