Renewing the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program has been an ANCOR priority issue because of its importance in moving people with disabilities into the community, and out of state-run institutions. The White House announcement copied below, sharing that the President has signed the three-month renewal bill Congress passed last week, shows how effective the advocacy of ANCOR, its members, and our disability partners is. Congratulations, advocates!
Because this is a short-term renewal, ANCOR will be continuing legislative discussions for a longer-term renewal. We will keep members informed of opportunities for further action.
