Nursing Facility Transition

What is the Nursing Facility Transition Project & Money Follows the Person?

Nursing Facility Transition Project or NFTP of Center for Disability Rights is a program that assists people with disabilities to transition out of nursing facilities to community living. People who were transitioned under the NFTP are now living in their own apartments, group homes and supportive housing or in other family members home.

Money Follows the Person or MFP is a Medicaid funded program of the CT Department of Social Services that provides funding, coordination, and support to the State of CT’s efforts to comply with the Olmstead mandate, and provide medical services in the community so that people are not forced to stay in nursing facilities to receive these services.

Most of Center for Disability Rights’ nursing facility transition activities are funded by Money Follows the Person. In fact, CDR is one of 13 community based non-profits that are partners in MFP.
