The Minnesota Department of Human Services recently awarded more than $7.5 million in grants to programs throughout the State that will help older adults with needs ranging from transportation and grocery delivery to caregiver support, home improvements and much more.

Live Well at Home grants help older Minnesotans remain in their homes rather than move to nursing homes or other more expensive settings. The latest grant funds are going to 53 organizations, benefiting Minnesotans statewide.

“Minnesota is a recognized national leader in helping older adults to remain independent,” said Acting Human Services Commissioner Chuck Johnson. “Through the Live Well at Home grants, we partner with local organizations throughout Minnesota to help older people stay in their homes and communities and to support family members and friends who provide most of the care for older Minnesotans.”

We are thrilled to be awarded $78,330 to expand our capacity to help make the homes of older adults accessible.  We are very grateful for our partnership with the Department of Human Services!
