Minnesota Family Investment Program
Minnesota’s cash grant for low-income families could increase for the first time in nearly 30 years. A family of three receives about $532 per month. Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and some lawmakers in both parties want to increase the grants by $100 to help the nearly 33,000 families in the program deal with rising housing and transportation costs.
Advocates say a grant for low-income Minnesota families should be raised for the first time in nearly three decades.
