MFP Added to Boston Housing Authority Preference List
The Boston Housing Authority (BHA) has added a preference to its recent housing Choice Voucher Administrative plan that prioritizes individuals existing institutions, specifically mentioning Money Follows the Person enrollees. This new preference also extends to Housing Choice Voucher Program and Project-Based Vouchers, as well as the Moderate Rehabilitation Program. The addition of MFP enrollees to the BHAs Administrative Plan provides new and exciting opportunities for MFP enrollees to access the BHAs substantial portfolio of housing options.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have made available a new report related to the Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration, titled “The Right Supports at the Right Time: How Money Follows the Person Programs Are Supporting Diverse Populations in the Community.” The report examines how six MFP grantees are serving populations with diverse needs in the community and the factors that have contributed to their strong performance on key outcome measures. This report is available on the Medicaid.gov web site under the topic “MFP Evaluation Information and Reports”.
