Get your loved ones back home with
the Nursing Home Transition Program

The Nursing Home Transition Program (NHTP) and Money Follows the Person program (MFP) offers support to Rhode Islanders who are interested in returning to the community from a nursing home. A transition team provides information and support to help a person evaluate their needs, develop a plan of care, and facilitate the transition.

The Money Follows the Person program (MFP) provides the supports and services available through the Nursing Home Transition Program but has more specific eligibility criteria. Through the MFP program, the state is eligible for additional federal financial support to be used for enhancing the system of long term services and supports.
