Civil Monetary Penalty Reinvestment Program


The Civil Monetary Penalties (CMP) Reinvestment Fund is a federal fund collection of imposed penalties against certified nursing facilities deemed non-compliant. These funds are used for projects that directly benefit individuals residing in a nursing facility. The goal of the CMP Reinvestment Funds are to help protect and improve the quality of life and care for individuals in a nursing facility. Utilizing CMP Reinvestment Funds provides the unique opportunity to improve the lives of many citizens of the Commonwealth.


Civil Money Penalty Reinvestment Program Funding Opportunity

Announcing the Civil Money Penalty Reinvestment Program (CMP-RP) State Fiscal Year 2024 (SFY 24) application cycle for funding. Please review the following information regarding this year's application process.

The Virginia General Assembly has appropriated CMP Reinvestment funds for DMAS and CMS-approved projects that protect or improve the quality of life and care of individuals residing in nursing facilities. Through an annual application submission and review process, DMAS will review project applications and determine which projects will move forward to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for consideration. If approved by CMS, DMAS will oversee project progress by way of reviewing obligatory quarterly and final program and financial reports.

Additional Grants Available for In-Person Visitation Aids to Increase or Improve Air Quality

Facilities may use up to an additional $3,000 for in-person visitation aids (e.g., indoor portable fans, indoor portable air cleaners with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA, H13 or -14) filters to increase or improve air quality) and shipping costs for the in-person visitation aids.

Expenses incurred on or after the release of Memorandum QSO-20-39-NH FAQ Revised, February 2, 2022 are eligible for reimbursement.

The grants are available through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services using Civil Monetary Penalties Reinvestment Program (CMP-RP) funds.

Facilities should ensure person-centered approaches and core principles for preventing COVID-19 transmission are followed while using in-person visitation aids.

CMS created a template to enable states to approve requests that meet CMS parameters without CMS review. Read the full parameters in the instructions on the template. We anticipate that this template and process will reduce the time for approval of CMP funds for the purchase of in-person visitation aids.

Per CMS, the State Agency, DMAS cannot approve any amounts above $3000.

Please include the current NPI# for each facility. The NPI# is required for processing payment. Also, please indicate if your facility receives Medicaid Reimbursements.
