Opportunity for input on Stearns County’s plan for the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP)

Stearns County Human Services is looking to get input from the public on its Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) Biennial Service Agreement/Plan. Throughout the month of September and into early October, Stearns County Human Services will be accepting public comment on the MFIP Plan.

Minnesota Statute requires counties to have an approved MFIP Plan to receive consolidated funds. The primary purpose of the plan is to provide the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) with information about services and strategies to meet state established outcomes with the goal of increasing the economic stability of low income families served with consolidated funds. The plan identifies an assessment of ongoing needs of families and children within program areas, resources available to address these needs, budgeting of allocated resources, and community participation and review in the planning and development.
