Live Well at Home Grant

Friday, March 18, 2016

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) recently issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Live Well at Home Grant. Proposals are due April 22nd, 2016 no later than 4:00 p.m., and information about the RFP can be found on DHS' Grants and RFP page.

The purpose of the Live Well at Home Grant is to develop and/or provide services for older Minnesotans to live in the community. It helps local communities to improve their capacity to develop, strengthen, integrate programs, maintain home and community-based services for people age 65 and older and at risk of long-term nursing home use and/or spending down into Medical Assistance. Grant proposals may include strengthening services for the caregiver support network.

On April 7, 2016, DHS will hold a responders' video conference for those who wish to learn more about the grant or the new application service center, or for those who simply have questions about the grant. Preregistration for the responders' video conference is required, and registration closes April 4, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. If you have questions, please contact Jaqueline Peichel at jacqueline.s.peichel@state.mn.us or (651) 431-2583.
