Program Goals
Html Content

The OCCP program goals are:

  • Joint partnership between Aging and People with Disabilities (APD), Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) and the Office of Developmental Disabilities Services (ODDS); expands the scope to cover populations served by these three programs.

  • Program to be administered by APD and work directly with the Steering Committee representatives of APD, AMH and ODDS.

  • Provide program integrity, efficiency of operations, increased transparency, and meaningful stakeholder involvement.
MFP requires all state grant recipients to submit reports to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Various reports are submitted on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual basis to CMS and Mathematica Policy Research, Inc. (contractor responsible for data collection and reporting) which reports the activity, progress and development of rebalancing efforts within Oregon.
OCCP’s goal is to provide eligible consumers with the person centered supports and services to aid in the growth and development of the eligible consumer as they progress from living in an institutional setting and transition successfully long term into their local community. OCCP Steering Committee and OCCP Stakeholder Committee will provide input and guidance for the OCCP goals.
The OCCP program staff would like to hear from you. Please submit your comments and/or suggestions to Sarah.D.Hout@state.or.us or Jeffrey.L.Puterbaugh@state.or.us. You can also contact program staff by emailing us at OCCP.Elg@dhs.oha.state.or.us or by calling 1-855-ELG-OCCP (1-855-354-6227). 
Sarah Hout and Jeff Puterbaugh were chosen to serve as the Director and Deputy Director for Oregon's Money Follows the Person (MFP) program. Both began their duties effective Jan. 14, 2013. 
Sarah and Jeff bring extensive background and experience which will allow APD and AMH the ability to provide leadership and development of MFP, as Oregon re-starts its program. Both are excited to see the potential this program brings in assisting institutionalized consumers being able to transition from nursing facilities, state hospital and other institutional housing and into community based housing and services resources within their local communities.
