State Policies & Initiatives: 
Systems-Change Funding

~~“In 2011, DAIL was awarded a five year $17.9 million “Money Follows the Person” (MFP) grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The grant was continued effective April 1, 2016 through September 30, 2019 with an additional $8 million. The goal of the MFP grant is to work together with the Choices for Care Program to help people living in nursing facilities to overcome barriers that have prevented them from moving to their preferred community-based setting. The program provides participants the assistance of a Transition Coordinator and up to $2,500 to address barriers to transition.
