Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration

Helping people return to the community.

PLEASE NOTE:  The Massachusetts Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration Grant ended support for new transitions as of December 31, 2016, and therefore is no longer enrolling individuals to participate in the Demonstration.  Please see contact information below, if you have any questions.   

The Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration Grant supported a voluntary program to help elders and people with disabilities to move from facility-based care back to the community.

MFP provided an array of supports and connected members to home and community based services (HCBS) designed to help individuals transition from nursing facilities and other long-stay hospital settings to the community. 

Although specific supports that were available through the MFP Demonstration to help members transition have ended, the grant continues to fund community-based services. 

In addition, a program formerly related to the grant, the HUD 811 Project Rental Assistance Program, will continue to identify housing opportunities for people leaving nursing homes and other long-stay facilities.  

Here are the MFP Demonstration's goals.

  • Increase the use of HCBS and reduce the use of facility-based services for MassHealth members.
  • Eliminate barriers that restrict the use of Medicaid funds for people receiving long-term care in the settings of their choice.
  • Strengthen the ability of Medicaid programs to provide HCBS to people who choose to transition out of facilities
