Money Follows the Person Funding Update

January 07, 2020

Because funding for the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program was ending in December, Consumer Voice called on advocates on December 16 to urge their Members of Congress to permanently reauthorize MFP. However, in a move on December 19 that surprised many, Congress approved another short-term reauthorization of the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program as a part of the minibus spending bill.  The bill reauthorizes MFP through May 22, 2020.  While we were hoping for a permanent reauthorization of MFP, an extension is still good news and means permanent reauthorization remains an option to pursue.  We will continue to monitor the status of the important Money Follows the Person program and will keep advocates updated.
