Michigan 2021 Civil Monetary Penalty Reinvestment State Plan
Civil Monetary Penalties (CMP) are imposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) when nursing homes do not maintain compliance with certain federal requirements.  A portion of the funds collected by CMS are returned to states to support activities that protect and benefit nursing home residents.  The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) accepts project proposals requesting to receive grant funds and facilitates the use of the funds.  Only CMP proposals that meet the statutory intent of the federal regulations will be sent to CMS for a final determination of acceptance.
Purpose of the Nursing Facility Enrichment Program
The purpose of the Nursing Facility Enrichment Program is to use Civil Monetary Penalty (CMP) funds to support projects and activities that will benefit nursing facility residents, family councils and other types of resident involvement. The Nursing Facility Enrichment Program also uses CMP funds to increase the quality of care in nursing facilities and implement nursing facility improvements such as staff trainings. Projects under this grant program must enrich the lives of nursing facility residents. All proposals must include enhancements to nursing facility services and go beyond the services required to be provided by a nursing facility.
How to Apply
Application instructions will be made available in advance of the next application period. The next application period is scheduled to begin April 2021. MDHHS will determine the application period based on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
