CMS to Provide Additional Funding for Money Follows the Person Program

Share this page

On March 31, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it would provide an additional $110 million for Medicaid’s Money Follows the Person (MFP) program. The MFP program expands access to home and community-based services by supporting individuals transitioning from institutions to their homes and communities.

The new Notice of Funding Opportunity makes awards of up to $5 million available to states and territories, with a focus on expanding in states and territories not currently participating in the MFP program. State Medicaid agencies may apply for the funding through May 31, 2022.

Currently, there are thirty-four states, including the District of Columbia, that participate in the program. For states already participating in the MFP program, CMS announced that MFP supplemental services will now be 100% federally funded, and that those “supplemental services” will be expanded to include additional services that support individuals’ transitions, including short-term housing and food assistance.
