S.F. No. 2513 - Housing Support (formerly Group Residential Housing) Modifications
Author: Senator Jim Abeler
Prepared By: Joan White, Senate Counsel (651/296-3814)
Date: February 21, 2018


Section 1 (256I.03, subd. 8) amends the definition of “supplementary services” by adding a cross-reference to the requirements under Minnesota Statutes, section 256I.04, subdivision 2h (section 3)

Section 2 (256I.04, subd. 2b) requires that providers of housing support confirm in their housing support agreement that the provider will not limit or restrict the number of hours an applicant or recipient chooses to be employed, as specified in subdivision 5 (section 4)

Section 3 (256I.04, subd. 2h) is a new subdivision that requires providers of supplementary services to ensure that recipients have, at a minimum, assistance with services identified in the individual’s professional statement of need.  This section also requires all providers to maintain case notes with the date and description of services provided to individual recipients.

Section 4 (256I.04, subd. 5) is a new subdivision that prohibits a provider from limiting or restricting the number of hours an applicant or recipient is employed.
