Live Well at Home Grants Available Through DHS

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) is seeking proposals for the Live Well at Home grant program. The purpose of this initiative is to develop and provide services for older Minnesotans to live and age in the community of their choice by improving the capacity to develop, strengthen, integrate, and maintain culturally competent home- and community-based services for individuals aged 65 and older at risk of long-term nursing home use or spending down into Medical Assistance. Proposals may also include strengthening services for the caregiver support network.

Live Well at Home Grants are intended to stimulate innovation by providing one-time, start-up funds to test new approaches in housing and home- and community-based services development and develop and support core home and community-based service providers.

Grants are also available to fund capital and renovation projects to help transition the state's long-term services and supports capacity into community-based settings. These projects include new construction, renovation, or remodeling of existing buildings to provide innovative and affordable housing and services for older adults so they may have a variety of options for how and where they want to age.

Approximately $8 million is available for the state fiscal year 2023. Further information is available via the Live Well at Home Grant RFP FY 2023. The deadline to apply is 4 p.m. on April 1. Interested organizations can apply through the online portal.

A Responders Conference will be held on Feb. 22, from 1 – 2:30 p.m. Organizations interested in applying should click on this WebEx meeting room to connect on the conference's date and time.

Questions should be directed to Courtney Whited, DHS Grant Specialist Senior, at courtney.whited@state.mn.us before March 22.
