Texas Money Follows The Person


“The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) will receive approximately $33.6 million in new funding over the next five years, which will be paired with existing state and federal funding for a total of $143 million. The agency will use the money to enhance its successful Money Follows the Person (MFP) initiative and expand its effort for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and persons with behavioral health needs.”
“The MFP initiative helps people who are receiving long-term services and supports in a nursing facility return to the community to receive their services without having to be placed on a community services interest list.”
