Civil Monetary Penalty (CMP) Grant Projects

Civil monetary penalties (CMPs) are fines imposed on nursing facilities that do not meet federal health and safety standards. States may use CMP funds for projects that improve resident outcomes in Medicare- and Medicaid-certified nursing facilities. The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) is now granting CMP funds for quality improvement projects with the most potential to meet the following criteria:

  • Produce results that may be used to benefit all Ohio nursing facility residents
  • Produce sustainable improvements in residents' lives
  • Innovative and data-driven in their approach to quality improvement
  • Incorporate research-based methodologies

Organizations that may qualify for use of CMP grant funds include, but are not limited to:

  • Consumer advocacy organizations
  • Resident or family councils
  • Professional or state nursing home associations
  • State Long-term Care Ombudsman program
  • Quality improvement organizations
  • University graduate programs
  • Private contractors
  • Corporations, both non-profit and for-profit
