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.
