Community Reintegration Program
Independent Living is the right of people with disabilities to control and direct their own lives, to have choices and options and to actively participate in all aspects of society.
The Community Reintegration Program (CRP) is designed to reintegrate individuals between the ages of 18 and 59 who are interested in moving back into the community from a nursing facility setting. Funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services' Division of Rehabilitation Services (DHS/DRS) and the Illinois Housing Development Authority, CRP is able to provide services and purchase items to establish a home in the community. This program is partially reimbursed by Medicaid.
The goal is to identify the services and support systems that a nursing facility resident may need in order to move into his or her own residence and to live independently again.
The Money Follows the Person (MFP) is sponsored by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). All services through the CRP program are available to MFP recipients.
