New York’s Balancing Incentive Program (BIP), authorized by Section 10202 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-148), provided enhanced Federal Medicaid Assistance Percentages (FMAP) to innovate and transform community-based supports in all regions of the state.

Over $65 million in grant funding was awarded to 104 organizations, funding 133 projects with one overarching goal: to make a difference in people’s lives through strategic investments that transform supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

BIP Transformation projects cover a broad range of transformational goals categorized in the following major areas:

  • Deinstitutionalization
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Self-Direction
  • Managed Care
  • Workforce Development

In order to highlight the successful outcomes of these grants and share innovations with all stakeholders, OPWDD will periodically post information on projects in these areas on the agency website.
