MNRAAA Awards Grants to 23 Organizations in Southwest Minnesota

MNRAAA received $100,000 from the Minnesota Council on Foundations (MCF) to assist organizations serving older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those funds have been distributed to twenty-three organizations throughout Southwest Minnesota.

“In April, when we received the ability to do this work through the Minnesota Council of Foundations, we made it a point to focus on community-based organizations and to get this money turned around and into the communities as soon as possible,” stated Executive Director Jason W. Swanson.

The grant dollars were established to assist our communities as we continue to work through the COVID-19 pandemic. The recipient organizations focus on supporting older adults, caregivers and/or persons with disabilities. Organizations are using these dollars to assist in providing nutrition services to potentially isolated individuals and provide their services virtually.
