ST. PAUL — Organizations helping or wishing to help older Minnesotans and people with disabilities stay in their homes have an opportunity to expand their capacity in rural and underserved communities.

Grants of up to $50,000 are available through the Minnesota Department of Human Services to home and community-based services providers. These providers perform many functions involving home-care or personal care assistance, which enable people to stay in their homes rather than move to institutionalized care settings like nursing homes.

Grants may be used for many purposes including staff costs, training and assistance in becoming eligible for Medicaid reimbursement, or translation or interpretive services — as long as the grant would improve the provider’s ability and capacity. The grants are for home and community-based services providers to deliver services to one or more of the following communities: Indigenous-American Indian, Black and African-born, Asian, Latino, and LGBTQ, as well as rural and regional centers outside the Twin Cities.

Up to $3 million in federal money is available. Applications are open through June 13. More information, including how to apply, is available at .
