The OSDH Civil Monetary Penalty Fund Program (CMP Fund Program) is intended to measurably improve care to benefit residents and patients in nursing homes, which include facilities certified for operation by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services defined as skilled nursing facilities (SNF), nursing facilities (NF), and dually certified skilled/nursing facilities (SNF/NF). The enabling legislation appropriates the monies of the CMP Fund for the protection of the health or property of residents of nursing facilities in compliance with federal guidance (42 CFR §488.433).
- Protect the health and property of nursing home residents,
- Promote evidence based practice,

- Empower staff through the adoption and implementation of culture change principles/practices.
Nursing homes and/or various organizations that are knowledgeable, skilled, and capable of meeting the project’s purpose in its area of expertise as long the organization and project are consistent with Federal law and policy. Examples of organizations that could qualify include, but are not limited to:
- consumer advocacy organizations
- resident or family councils

- State long-term care ombudsman programs
- quality improvement organizations
