Alabama Gets Funds for Money Follows the Person

Elderly and disabled Alabamians will soon have more help to live independently in their homes and communities instead of in institutional long-term care facilities, thanks to new grant funding from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).  Alabama was one of three states notified by CMS on October 2 that their request for a Money Follows the Person Rebalancing (MFP) Grant Demonstration project had been approved. Montana and South Dakota also received MFP grants, joining 43 other states and the District of Columbia with MFP initiatives.
