posted Jul 7, 2010, 11:10 AM by Mary Lopez

Virginia is one of 31 states participating in a five-year, $1.75 billion Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration project designed to create a system of long-term services and supports that assist individuals to transition from certain long-term care institutions into the community.  This project supports Virginia’s Olmstead initiative and complements the efforts of the recently awarded Systems Transformation Grant that aims to improve the infrastructure for community-based long-term supports.  Virginia’s MFP project, administered by the Department of Medical Assistance Services (www.dmas.virginia.gov) , will make over $28 million in federal Medicaid funds available to support Virginia’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.  For more details and the most current information on the MFP project, please visit http://www.olmsteadva.com/mfp.
