About I Choose Home – NJ
A Nursing Home May Not Be the Only Option
I Choose Home – NJ is part of the federal program, “Money Follows the Person (MFP),” which aims to move people out of nursing homes and developmental centers and back into the community.
Who Is Eligible?
NJ residents may be eligible if they:
- Have lived 90+ days in a nursing home or developmental center
- Are interested in moving back to the community
- Are eligible for Medicaid (clinical and financial) at least one day prior to leaving the facility
Eligible residents may be able to move to an independent community setting with supports and services.
