Moving Home Minnesota

Moving Home Minnesota (MHM) is the name for Minnesota’s Money Follows the Person (MFP) Rebalancing Demonstration, which is offered through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The goal of the demonstration is to encourage the transition of eligible Minnesotans from a qualified institution to community living by increased outreach, improved transition processes, and by identifying and addressing barriers to sustained community living after transition.

Demonstrations operating under MFP focus on the first year after an eligible individual moves from the institution to the community. The goal is to support the person during that year and to assist each person to become integrated into the community so that they will be able to remain in the community with the supports and services otherwise available under Medical Assistance (MA) and Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) at the end of the 12 month transitional period.

MNTAT is working in collaboration with the MN Department of Human Services to develop a cadre of qualified employment providers who will be trained to use Customized Employment methods and strategies to assist people in finding competitive employment in their communities.

Qualified Employment Providers will be selected from a pool of applicants that have participated in MNTAT Customized Employment Training in the past that represent a cross-section of Minnesota. The selected applicants will go through an extensive 40 hour ACRE* certified training on Customized Employment that will be presented by MNTAT. This training will be offered at no cost to the selected applicants.
