ngd- Alright, Sherri!

The clock is ticking for Congress to act to renew a bipartisan, effective and popular program that keeps people with disabilities living in the community instead of in nursing homes.

The Money Follows the Person program, or MFP, helps individuals with disabilities and seniors who want to move out of nursing homes and back to their communities. It has been implemented in 44 states, including Michigan, and has supported more than 91,000 people since 2005. It’s cost effective — providing long term services in the home costs less than institutional care.
