Housing stabilization services now available in Minnesota
Effective July 2020, housing stabilization services are available without a waiver through Minnesota's MA state plan. Upon annual renewal, the new services replace the housing access coordination services traditionally available through BI, CAC, CADI and DD waivers. Meanwhile, people on a waiver will continue to receive support to find or keep community housing.
Use stimulus payments to fund an ABLE account
ABLE accounts don't affect eligibility for most benefit programs and earnings grow tax-free. Encourage the people you support to contribute all or a portion of their stimulus payments to an ABLE account. If the funds aren't needed immediately, the stimulus is an opportunity to build an emergency fund or invest for the future.
