FMAP Funding Deadlines Approach for ADHC Programs

The Department of Health (DOH) has initiated the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) funding distribution process for adult day health care (ADHC) programs. As members know, $6 million in funding for ADHC programs is being distributed by states from the federal government under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

Eligible ADHC programs should have received an email from the Department last week if they were operating on Aug. 1, 2023, are still open and operating, and if they registered for the distribution back in August 2023.

The Department has issued program-specific emails which should contain each program’s approximate projected FMAP dollar amount based on capacity.

DOH is expected to issue a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document very soon. They are also currently offering office hours for programs that have questions and need assistance. Programs should take advantage of this opportunity, as there are many questions around allowed/disallowed spending items and how detailed a spending program must be by the Feb. 16th due date. DOH urge programs to email ADHC_ARPA@health.ny.gov as soon as they have questions and understands that this is a quick turnaround. There will be no extension for applying for funds.

DOH has provided the recording of their pre-recorded webinar on the funding opportunity here. The Adult Day Health Care Council (ADHCC) also held a webinar on the opportunity, and programs shared concerns and feedback received thus far from the Department. The ADHCC webinar recording is available here.

Programs should note that the Department has communicated that they will be flexible in allowing programs to submit additional information to their spending plans, due to the short timeframe for submission. Programs should reach out to the Department to obtain more detail on what this might entail.

Programs should contact Meg Everett with any questions regarding this opportunity.
