Action Alert: Money Follows the Person


The Money Follows the Person (MFP)program is a Medicaid program that has helped more than 75 thousand people with disabilities and seniors move from nursing homes and other institutions to the community.  The MFP program has expired, and we need your advocacy to get the House and Senate to pass the EMPOWER Care Act to continue it before the programs are broken down at the state level. All programs will be out of money THIS YEAR. 

ACT NOW: 
Participate in our social media day  (Thursday, March 8) to #FundMFP.  -- Facebook event 

Everyone deserves the opportunity to live in the community!

Background materials on MFP, the EMPOWER Care Act, and our call-in day are all available at the links above (and from:  https://medicaid.publicrep.org/feature/money-follows-the-person/) Please spread the word widely to your grassroots and join in our #FundMFP advocacy

By passing the EMPOWER Care Act and funding the Money Follows the Person program, Congress can help more people with disabilities transition out of institutions and nursing homes and into the homes and communities of their choice. Join us, and share widely! 


Thanks!
