Rice County Seeks Public Input for the 2018-2019 MFIP Biennial Service Agreement

Rice County Social Services is preparing its Biennial Service Agreement 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 Agreement 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. We seek input from the public regarding the services we provide to Diversionary Work Program and Minnesota Family Investment Program Families. If you have comments or suggestions for this plan please email Michele Evans at by November 21, 2017.
