Webinar: PIPP Grants: Insight for a Successful Proposal
The latest round of Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) Skilled Nursing Facility/Nursing Facility (SNF/NF) Performance-Based Incentive Payment Program (PIPP) Grant Requests for Proposals (RFP) is now underway. PIPP supports provider-initiated projects aimed at improving the quality and efficiency of nursing home care.

Provider-initiated projects are selected through a competitive process and funded for up to 5% of the weighted average operating payment rate. Minnesota has made a major investment in PIPP by supporting 284 individual or collaborative projects, representing 286 facilities and total funding of over $134 million to-date.

DHS will implement the twelfth round of PIPP payments on July 1, 2018. To be considered, an organization must submit a fillable form to DHS by midnight on May 1, 2018.

While there is a PIPP Instruction Manual and a boot camp, how does one go about selecting a project and recruiting project mentors? Attend this free, members-only webinar to gain insight into a successful proposal from two experienced applicants.
