Money Follows the Person Grant

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) to help people living in nursing facilities overcome barriers to moving to their preferred community-based setting. The grant works within the Choices for Care program and provides participants the assistance of a Transition Coordinator and up to $2,500 to address barriers to transition. Effective April 1, 2016, Vermont received a continued $8 million dollar award for services through September 30, 2019.
