Federal Funding Available to Support Nursing Facilities

This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

In All Facilities Letter 19-03, the California Department of Public Health outlines requirements for a federal grant available to skilled-nursing and nursing facilities.

The grant funding will come from federal civil monetary penalties issued when a facility is out of compliance with one or more Medicare or Medicaid participation requirements. Through the grant process, the funds are reinvested to support activities that benefit patients’ quality of life.
