Adult Family Home State Civil Penalty Reinvestment Program

Civil money penalties are fines imposed on adult family homes that do not meet federal health and safety standards.  These funds are deposited into an account with the state treasurer and are only to be used to promote the quality of life and care of residents living in adult family homes.

The State Civil Penalty Reinvestment Program (SCPRP) allows adult family home providers, stakeholders and other organizations to submit grant applications for the development and implementation of quality improvement initiatives that directly or indirectly benefit adult family home residents.  The Department will consider applications during the application period of June 1 through July 31.
