PAUL - The Southwestern Minnesota Adult Mental Health Consortium (comprised of Big Stone, Chippewa, Cottonwood, Jackson, Kandiyohi, Lac qui Parle, Lincoln, Lyon, McLeod, Meeker, Murray, Nobles, Pipestone, Redwood, Renville, Rock, Swift and Yellow Medicine counties) has received a $100,000 grant to assist people with disabilities in addressing housing needs.

More than $7 million was awarded to 46 counties and three American Indian tribes in Minnesota. These Community Living Infrastructure grants will go toward a variety of initiatives aimed at helping people with disabilities with housing instability get housing, move out into the community or remain in their own homes.

The grants will be distributed over four years. Funding for the grants was appropriated by the 2017 Legislature within the Minnesota Housing Support Act.
