Iowa Money Follows the Person


“Money Follows the Person (MFP) Partnership for Community Integration Project is a $51 million grant from the Centers for Medicareid and Medicaid Services. It will provide opportunities for individuals in Iowa to move out of Intermediate Care Facilities for Persons with Intellectual Disability (ICF/ID) and into their own homes in the community of their choice. Individuals living in Nursing Facilities may also qualify. Grant funds provide funding for the transition services and enhanced supports needed for the first year after they transition into the community. MFP assistance is available to individuals with a diagnosis of an Intellectual Disability or Brain Injury who has lived in an ICF/ID or a Nursing Facility for at least three months. The individual must express an interest moving from the ICF/ID or Nursing Facility into the community.”
