Money Follows the Person (MFP) Project - "Open Doors"

MFP Program Goal

STIC is partnering with the New York Association on Independent Living, Inc. (NYAIL) to  provide the Money Follows the Person (MFP) Transition Center and Peer Outreach & Referral programs. This voluntary project, funded by the Department of Health as part of the federal MFP demonstration, is designed to help Medicaid eligible individuals living in nursing homes, hospitals and other long term settings return to the community. It also assists individuals with developmental disabilities living in large group homes and institutions (Intermediate Care Facilities and Developmental Centers) transition to smaller community settings or more integrated community programs.

The Money Follows the Person Project (MFP) is a program of the New York State Department of Health (DOH) and NYAIL. It was designed to identify and reach out to certain residents of nursing homes, group homes, developmental centers and others who are Medicaid recipients, in order to provide them with comprehensive and unbiased information about home and community-based services.

The MFP Transition Specialists will inform facility discharge planners of residents desire to return to the community when requested to do so by residents or their legal representatives. Once equipped with information, residents/legal representatives can then work with their discharge planners and MFP to arrange for transition back to the community with appropriate services and supports.

Service Area

The counties covered by the MFP Project include:


MFP staff provide information on a wide variety of county specific, long term home care programs, including waiver services, MLTC providers, personal care aides, meals on wheels, and other services. We meet face-to-face with residents, social workers, and/or family to discuss options and potential barriers to returning to the community.

The Purpose of the MFP Project is to ensure that institutionalized residents have adequate information to make informed choices about their long term care services.

STIC works jointly with AIM Independent Living Center, Access to Independence of Cortland County Inc. and Catskill Center for Independence to assist with the 12 county regions.

Individuals, family members, advocates and service providers can also make a referral to meet with an transition specialist and learn more about potential opportunities.
