Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Grants are intended for improving the quality of care and well-being of residents in certified nursing facilities. Grants are awarded annually to eligible entities for one-time or start-up projects. CMP Grants may not be used for nursing home services, supplies, or equipment that are the responsibility of nursing homes, such as laundry, linen, food, heat, or staffing costs. Projects must be continued or concluded without additional CMP funding.
DHHS will award up to three CMP grant projects worth up to a combined $50,000. Grant projects under $5,000 will not be considered. CMP grant awards are subject to funding availability.
Please see the CMP Program Manual and Grant Application for more information.
