Money Follows the Person (MFP) Technical Assistance (TA) Needs Assessment is a survey that collects data on states' progress and TA needs in implementing the MFP Demonstration.
The MFP TA Tracker allows MFP-related professionals to track technical assistance requests and outcomes. It allows users to track assigned requests, reassign them to other users, add comments to requests and more.
The National Clearinghouse of Rehabilitation Training Materials (NCRTM) website offers the vocational rehabilitation and education communities an opportunity to contribute new knowledge to their specific fields and gain visibility for their work.
The Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) website is designed to assist the ICDR in its goal to promote coordination and cooperation among federal departments and agencies conducting disability, independent living, and rehabilitation research programs. It provides information about ICDR activities, resources and accomplishments.
The Money Follows the Person (MFP) Technical Assistance (TA) website promotes promising practices and provides guidance on program improvement strategies in the areas of system performance and individual consumer outcomes for the MFP Rebalancing Demonstration.

Do you know where you will live when you are 80 years old? Will your home accommodate your health and physical needs? How will you manage if you cannot drive? Will you be able to sell your house and move into affordable, accessible housing with accessible public transportation?
Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration projects across the country say that the biggest obstacle to successful transition is the lack of affordable, accessible housing. When someone chooses to use self determination to return home to a tiny community out in the middle of nowhere, the problem can seem exponentially more difficult. Coupled with lack of housing, there is typically a lack of formal services and limited (if any) public transportation.
