  • Child Care Assistance via Basic Sliding Fee (BSF) Grants and BSF Grants: E22, B421
    The previous order had included funding for MFIP and Transition-Year Child Care Assistance Grants, so these were already being funded

    State Case Management Grants; State Insurance Premium Grants; ADAP Drug Rebates - Title II Grants; Title II - Base Grant F59, H119; Part B - ADAP Grants - Title II Grant F59, H118
  • Home health services grants and mental health grants

  • Chemical dependency treatment grants, programs and aids

The following programs and grants were DENIED continued funding based on the Special Master's recommendations:

  • Migrant Child Care and Migrant Day Care Grants (because there is no federal funding commingled with these grants)
  • Parent Support Outreach Grant and Title IV-E Parent Support Outreach F08, C200 (because they are interpreted to be critical core functions essential to the life, health, and safety of Minnesota citizens and there was no public testimony on these grants)
  • Refugee Social Services Grant (because need for continued employment support for needy populations is not deemed a critical core function)
