Money Follows the Person

Money Follows the Person (MFP) is a state project that helps Medicaid-eligible North Carolinians who live in inpatient facilities move into their own homes and communities with supports.

North Carolina was awarded its MFP grant from CMS in May 2007 and began supporting individuals to transition in 2009. Under the Affordable Care Act, MFP was extended through 2020.

In 2018, NC MFP partnered with Mercer to conduct a transition sustainability analysis. The results of the analysis, and the 58 recommendations for future modifications can be accessed on the Final Report and Recommendation documents. 

As the NC MFP project moves forward we will be providing updates on various program and policy changes on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. Check back regularly for changes.
