Live Well at Home Grants offer funding to develop and /or provide services to allow for older Minnesotans to live in the community. Funded projects will improve capacity to develop, strengthen, and integrate programs; maintain home and community-based services for individuals' age 65 and older and at risk of long-term nursing home use and/or spending down into medical assistance; and strengthen services for the caregiver support network.

Of particular interest are:

  • Proposals from cultural and ethnic community organizations

  • Models that serve older adults in rural areas

Awards will be made in 3 categories.

Eligible applicants are home and community based service providers as defined in Minnesota Statutes, section 256B.0917, subd. 1b(c).

Organizations should have operating budgets of $175,000 or less annually and serve a geographically limited area. Priority will be given to the development of new core home and community-based service providers in communities where there is a lack of affordable services or to those existing core home and community-based service providers expanding into adjacent unserved communities.
