Money Follows the Person

From 2008 - 2012, the DSW Resource Center will provide individualized, in-depth technical assistance to Money Follows the Person (MFP) grantees as they work to strengthen the home and community-based direct service workforce in their states to support individuals transitioning from institutional settings. This includes regular meetings of a work group of MFP grantees interested in direct service workforce development. Through this TA, we hope to help states design better workforce policies and build the service capacity necessary for their transition activities and their home and community based services programs to be successful.

  • MFP Discussion Forum: This forum facilitates state-to-state exchange of information for MFP states focusing on DSW issues. You can direct questions or comments at specific grantees or all grantees. If particular documents would be relevant in this exchange, feel free to attach the document to your comment.
