What are CMP Grants?

Civil Monetary Penalty (CMP) funds are monetary penalties imposed by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) against skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). A portion of these funds are then returned to the state in which they were imposed and reinvested through grants that seek to improve quality of care or quality of life of residents. All Medicare and/or Medicaid certified SNFs in California are eligible to participate in LeadingAge California’s CMP grant-funded projects.
