The Civil Monetary Penalties (CMP) Reinvestment Fund is a federal fund collection of imposed penalties against certified nursing facilities deemed non-compliant. These funds are used for projects that directly benefit individuals residing in a nursing facility. The goal of the CMP Reinvestment Funds are to help protect and improve the quality of life and care for individuals in a nursing facility.
