2016‐2017 MFIP Biennial Service Agreement
Minnesota Statute, 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) in 2016 and 2017. The purpose of the agreement is to provide 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.

Connecting Brain Science to Practice - Videos
Ramsey County is highlighting innovative work by Workforce Solutions, Goodwill Easter Seals, and other service partners regarding research findings from our Families Achieving Success Today (FAST) program. The centerpiece will be research about brain science and how it connects to the work we are doing with families. Specifically, we are highlighting educational research that can be applied in practice to support families as we find ways to help them combat poverty and move into unsubsidized jobs. Below are videos of some innovative work in our community.
