Maine Implements MFP Demonstration Program following TAC TA
Maine's Office of Aging and Disability Services, together with the State Housing Authority, successfully implemented Homeward Bound, Maine's Money Follows the Person (MFP) demonstration program. The program grant is funded by the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) and TAC staff provided technical assistance (TA) to the state on MFP program implementation.
Homeward Bound is designed to help elderly and disabled adults with complex, long-term care needs move from institutional to community settings. It is also designed to help examine how best to help people transition and use this information to improve Maine's long-term care system beyond the grant period.
