Support Community Services for People with Disabilities by Extending the Money Follows the Person Program
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Medicaid Money Follows the Person (MFP) program makes it possible for individuals with disabilities and seniors to receive their long-term supports in the setting of their choice, for example, in their home rather than in a nursing home. Since the program was created by President George W. Bush, more than 75,000 people with disabilities and seniors have received MFP transition and other services to help support their move back home.

Congress and the President acted quickly in January to approve a short-term extension, with limited funds, to keep the MFP program going. The program needs a long-term extension before MFP funds run out.

Bipartisan legislation was recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives (H.R. 1342) and U.S. Senate (S. 548) to extend the program through 2023.

Contact your Members of Congress: Ask them to support the long-term extension of the Money Follows the Person program.
