Civil Monetary Penalty (CMP) Grant Program

Civil Monetary Penalties 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.
