Money Follows the Person (MFP) is a federal initiative whose goal is to move currently institutionalized persons with disabilities into home- and community based care. This is seen as a way to improve quality of life and enhance independent living for individuals, and to save federal and state Medicaid dollars. Idaho and other states are currently researching the design and implementation of MFP.
