Stateapproves emergency funding for service providers #mnleg #disabilities The Minnesota Legislature approved $30.4 million in relief funding for disability service providers during the special session in August. The dollars are split, with $20.3 million for Retention Grants and $10.1 million in Public Health Grants. Funds from retention grants will be issued by September 30 to eligible providers that apply. Retention grant funds must be used for fixed costs incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic from March 1, 2020 to December 30, 2020 and associated with maintaining the provider’s capability to provide services. Dollars for this effort are provided by federal Coronavirus Relief Fund. Public health grants are tied to individualized employment services and other factors.
ProAct appreciates the calls and emails made to area legislators to stress the need for this funding. Receive ProAct updates by texting ProAct to 22828
