Section 9817 of the American Rescue Plan (ARP)

As part of the American Rescue Plan Act, Congress provided a temporary 10% increase in the federal matching on Medicaid home- and community-based services (HCBS). In order to claim this enhanced federal funding, states must develop a detailed spending plan for reinvesting these dollars to enhance, expand or strengthen HCBS in a manner that is sustainable after this enhanced funding ends.
