Mathematica Policy Research has issued a report, Money Follows the Person Demonstration: Overview of State Grantee Progress, July to December 2011. The report summarizes the progress of the Money Follows the Person grant programs in 33 states and the District of Columbia.
MFP is a demonstration that aims to give individuals with disabilities greater choice about where they live and receive long-term services and supports. The report found that the number of people enrolled in MFP has grown steadily over the four years the demonstration has been in place, though enrollment growth leveled off during 2011. There were nearly 4,000 transitions from institutions to home and community settings in the second half of 2011 and nearly 20,000 over the life of the program.
