Under Minnesota Statutes, section 256J.626, subdivision 4; counties, consortia, and tribes are required to submit a Biennial Service Agreement (BSA) to be approved by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) to receive consolidated funds for the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP). The purpose of the BSA is to provide DHS with information about services and strategies intended to meet program measures with the goal of increasing the economic stability of low income families on MFIP. The different sections of the BSA gather information about program strengths and service delivery gaps. The BSA will give us a comprehensive assessment of current efforts, insight into what types of assistance are needed, and information on new strategies to better serve participants. We want to ensure that people served through MFIP are equipped to obtain and sustain gainful employment that will ultimately lead to greater self-sufficiency.
By law, counties and tribes must allow a period of at least 30 days for public comments on the contents of the agreement before approval. For MNPrairie this period is September 6-October 7, 2019. Please direct any questions you may have to:
