Applications open for services in rural and under-served communities

Organizations looking to expand their capacity to provide services to older adults and people with disabilities have a new opportunity to support or enhance their work. Grants of $100,000-$250,000 are available from the Minnesota Department of Human Services to organizations serving, or looking to serve, home and community-based services to rural and under-served communities.

Home and community-based services provide opportunities for people to receive services such as home-care or personal care assistance in their home or community rather than move to institutional care settings. The provider capacity grant program is intended to increase the number of service providers throughout Minnesota and the number providing culturally specific services, including organizations serving people with complex needs, the LGBTQ+ community and providing language supports and culturally-specific services.

The grant application is open from Dec. 12 through Jan. 17. More information about the grants and application is available at mn.gov/dhs/grants-equity-access-research/.
