Pennsylvania's Long Term Care Grant Program

The PA Departments of Health and Human Services (departments) work collaboratively to operate the Pennsylvania's Long Term Care Grant program.

The goal of Pennsylvania's Long Term Care Grant program is to facilitate the use of federally imposed Civil Money Penalty funds for activities that support, protect and benefit residents living in nursing facilities.

Civil Monetary Penalties (CMPs) are imposed by the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Department of Human Services as recommended by the Department of Health when the department finds long term care facilities to be in violation of CMS Conditions of Participation.

CMP funds will support these projects, at a maximum award of $50,000 per project.
