HCBS Scholarship for 2019 Now Open
On September 4, 2018 by Jenna Kellerman
The Minnesota Department of Health is soliciting grant proposals from providers of adult day care, home care, and housing with services to provide educational scholarships for their employees. Applications are due by Friday, Oct. 19.
Due in part to our advocacy during the 2017 legislative session for additional funding for this program, there is approximately $1,450,000 available to distribute. Applicants with more than 200 scholarship-eligible employees may request up to $90,000. Applicants with fewer than 200 scholarship-eligible employees may request no more than $70,000. The minimum amount for each grant award will be $20,000.
Grants will run for 24 months, starting on Jan. 1, 2019 and ending Dec. 31, 2020. Applications are due by Friday, Oct. 19.
