Letter to Commissioners Harpstead and Ricker regarding access to services for students through school linked mental health and related services

Q. Should we be adjusting our SLMH grant budgets? We’re using a lot of admin time to adjust – might there be additional funds for agencies, in the same way teachers are being paid to plan?
A. DHS: Yes, we’ve been talking about ability to adjust line items. We are working towards that flexibility within the grants. Additional dollars is absolutely on our radar.


Residential care providers – all staff, including direct care/front line staff – will be 
included in the MN Department of Education-designed child care in schools for 
children of health care and emergency response workers. 

Here is an updated list of workers that should be included in MDE-designed child 
care settings. You can find the same information on this
 MDE webpage, on an announcement dated 3/17/20.

Here is Governor Walz's letter to childcare providers, dated March 25, 2020

Emergency workers with children infant to school age in need of child care should call 1.888.291.9811 to be directed to available providers. In addition, families can view current providers on this map.
