N.D. Money Follows the Person

Tribal Initiative Program

North Dakota’s Money Follows the Person Tribal Initiative helps tribal elders and/or tribal members with disabilities transition from long-term care facilities or institutions to community living that meets their needs and wants. The program covers one-time moving costs and provides services and supports to help individuals achieve successful transitions.

The goals of the Tribal/State Partnership:

  • Expand the capacity of Medicaid community-based long-term services and supports
  • Enhance the leadership role of Tribes in the design and operations of these programs
  • Rebalance the long-term care system by transitioning, at their choice, eligible and interested tribal members to their communities
  • Build capacity of tribal organizations to work with their partner state in designing and managing a system of community-based long-term services and supports focused on culturally responsive support services with continuous quality improvement

The program is a collaborative effort between North Dakota Tribal Nations, the North Dakota State University Master of Public Health Department and the North Dakota Department of Human Services. The program is funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
