Money Follows the Person 2011 Annual Evaluation Report


The Money Follows the Person (MFP) demonstration program represents a major initiative to give people needing long-term services and supports (LTSS) more choice about where they live and receive care, and to increase the capacity of state long-term care systems to serve people in the community rather than in institutions. The MFP demonstration grew in 2011, from 31 to 44 state grantees, when 13 additional states were awarded MFP grants.
