Keep “Money Follows the Person Program” Alive

Unless Congress takes immediate action, this program is going to disappear. You can help elderly and disabled people with your letter encouraging your Congressperson to vote. The Money Follows the Person (MFP) Program that helps older adults and people with disabilities transfer out of institutional and into community-based settings is under threat. Unless Congress takes action, the MFP Program will end on September 30, 2016.

There’s still time to keep MFP alive and you can help by telling your Congressperson to vote to continue to fund this successful program that has helped more than 51,000 people move into a setting of their choice since 2005.

Not only does the program increase independence for seniors and people with disabilities, it has also helped states improve access to home and community-based services (HCBS) and saved states and the federal government money because it costs less to provide these services in the community than it does in an institution.

You can send a letter to your Congressperson through the The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care website.
