Social Isolation Grant Funding Opportunity Available for Home Care and Assisted Living

The application is now available to apply for grants made available through the Home Care Provider Advisory Council. The Council has been given approval by the Commissioner of Health to provide funding to home care providers and other entities to mitigate social isolation of vulnerable adults residing in home care provider settings including assisted living settings.

The Home Care Provider Advisory Council will provide grants, up to $2,500 for each provider or entity selected, up to $100,000 total. The funds will need to be used by the provider or entity for devices to assist with virtual visits designated for both health care and social isolation. The funds may be used for assistance with improving Wi-Fi or assisting with training and staffing for use of the devices purchased.

The application period opened Jan. 18, 2021 and will remain open for 30 days or until allocated money has been awarded, whichever comes first. Completed applications should be emailed to the Home Care and Assisted Living inbox at health.homecare@state.mn.us. If you are selected, the Home Care Advisory Council will notify you via the email address you provide on the application.
