2016 - 2017 County MFIP Biennial Service Agreement   
Minnesota Statutes, section 256J.626, subdivision 4, requires counties and nations/tribes to have a Biennial Service Agreement (BSA) approved by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) to receive consolidated funds for the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP). The purpose of the agreement is to provide 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. DHS wants to focus on positive outcomes for our participants, in addition to meeting required process measures. The different sections of the BSA were developed to gather information about program strengths and service delivery gaps for participants. Some sections are longer than others due to the need for specialized services for specific populations. The agreement will give DHS a comprehensive assessment of current efforts; insight into what types of assistance are needed; and information on new strategies to better serve program participants. DHS wants to ensure that participants are equipped to obtain and sustain gainful employment that will ultimately lead to greater self-sufficiency.

Vulnerable Children and Adults Act Service Plan   Vulnerable Children and Adults Act
The 2011 Minnesota Legislature created the Vulnerable Children and Adults Act (VCA), establishing a fund to address the needs of vulnerable children (including adolescents) and adults. This new act revised and renamed the Children and Community Services Act (2011 Laws of Minnesota, First Special Session, Chapter 9). As a future reference note for this act, the Minnesota statute citation will remain the same (§256M) after 2011 legislative revisions are made. The act requires an approved service plan between the county board and the commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Human Services (hereafter, department) in order to receive funds. The primary purpose is to keep vulnerable children and adults safe and improve their well-being. The service plan provides a summary of ongoing needs of vulnerable children and adults, resources available to address these needs, budgeting of allocated resources, and community participation in the planning and development of the service plan.
