Community Transitions
Money Follows The Person

 

The Community Transitions Program, formerly known as the Money Follows the Person Program, was created and authorized by the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 and is a grant-funded program designed to assist Medicaid beneficiaries in transitioning from an institutional setting into a community setting using person-centered practices.  Georgia's Department of Community Health contracts with other state agencies, including the Department of Human Services to administer the grant.  A Transition Coordinator will assist with developing an individualized transition plan, identifying supports, and coordinating services to help the person transition into qualified housing in the community of their choice.  To make a referral to the Community Transitions Program, formerly known as the Money Follows the Person Program, please contact your local Area Agency on Aging or the MDSQ-Options Counselor for your local county.
