Organizations serving people with disabilities and aging populations across Minnesota will receive more than $14 million to expand services to diverse communities, rural areas and regional centers. Funding for the community-based provider capacity grants comes from the federal American Rescue Plan Act, with a recent commitment by Gov. Tim Walz and the Minnesota Legislature to temporarily continue the grant program.
The grants will help organizations improve their capacity to provide Home and Community-Based Services for people with disabilities and aging Minnesotans.
Providers that serve or plan to add services for rural and underserved communities will receive funding, along with organizations working to become Home and Community-Based Services providers for the first time.
“So many providers want to expand their services and we are pleased to support them,” said Human Services Commissioner Jodi Harpstead. “These grants can be transformational, allowing them to extend their reach to more Minnesotans.”
