Nursing home providers and stakeholders are encouraged to submit Civil Money Penalty (CMP) grant applications for the development and implementation of quality improvement initiatives that directly or indirectly benefit nursing facility residents.
Effective June 1, 2016, the Division of Medicaid (DOM) will accept CMP Grant Applications. There is no longer a deadline to apply, but applications will be reviewed in the order they are received.
- CMP applications shall be accepted from dually certified providers (SNF/NF) and nursing facilities (NF) and other organizations.
- CMP applications shall be submitted electronically to the Division of Medicaid utilizing the Region IV: CMP Grant Request form. The form can be downloaded from the DOM website on the Civil Money Penalty Grant Awards Program webpage.
- The completed grant application and the grant proposal information should be attached and emailed to the CMP Grants Mailbox: CMPGrants@medicaid.ms.gov
- Enhancement or educational grants should demonstrate current and sound evidence-based practices that promote quality of care and quality of life for nursing facility residents.
Collaboratively, representatives from the Division of Medicaid and the Mississippi Department of Health, Division of Licensure and Certification shall first assess the merit of each proposed project and the ability of the project to improve resident outcomes and advance the care and services provided in certified long term care facilities. Following this collaborative review, the CMP application shall be forwarded to the CMS electronic mail box for a decision.
Additional guidance and specific instructions for completing the CMP grant proposal are also included in the grant application request form. Failure to complete all sections of the application may result in denial of the grant request.
