Money Follows the Person

20190306 Update

The Money Follows the Person (MFP) program helps older adults and people with disabilities move out of institutions and into the community and is a common-sense way to fund Medicaid HCBS that improve the quality of life for people and families, and save federal dollars that would otherwise be spent in more costly institutions. Congress passed stop-gap funding for the program in January (H.R. 259), but we anticipate those funds will run out before the end of the fiscal year.

The EMPOWER Care Act (H.R. 1342, S. 548) to reauthorize the MFP program.
