On February 18, 2020 by Jodi Boyne
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) is seeking proposals to develop and/or provide services for older Minnesotans to live and age in the community of their choice.
Live Well at Home Grants help develop, strengthen, integrate, and maintain culturally competent home and community-based services for individuals age 65 and older, at-risk of long-term nursing home use, and/or spending down into Medical Assistance.
Approximately $8 million will be available to successful responders in fiscal year 2021. Grants will range from 12 to 24 months, from July 1, 2020 until June 30, 2022, with the option to potentially extend beyond that date. The maximum initial award per year is $350,000. There is a dollar-for-dollar or 50% project total matching requirement for all grant funds expended.
Live Well at Home Grants promote the development of services that are available to people of all income levels, particularly those who are eligible for public programs and that expand affordable options that are sustained through the private market. Grants are available for three general categories:
- capital and renovation projects;
- long-term services and support development; and
- core home and community-based services.
Proposals may include strengthening services for supporting solo agers, family, friends, and neighbor caregiving.
