Funding Sources

Many of the services provided by Fraser and other organizations may not be covered by health insurance. Yet families still need help paying for the services they need. Knowing what is available and where to go to access funding can be difficult. This page should get you started by connecting you to the financial supports available to families in Minnesota.

State Waivers

Minnesota Department of Human Services - DD Waiver — The DD Waiver provides funding for home and community-based services for children and adults with developmental disabilities or related conditions.

Minnesota Department of Human Services - CADI Waiver — The Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals (CADI) Waiver provides funding for home and community-based services for children and adults, who would otherwise require the level of care provided in a nursing facility.

Minnesota Department of Human Services - BI Waiver — The Brain Injury Waiver (Formerly TBI) provides funding for home and community-based services for children and adults who have an acquired or traumatic brain injury.

Grant Funding

Consumer Support Grant – The CSG program gives consumers greater flexibility and freedom of choice in service selection, payment rates, service delivery specifications and employment of service providers. Parents, spouses, family members, trusted neighbors or friends can be paid for service, as well as employees of traditional home care provider agencies.

Family Support Grant The Family Support Grant (FSG) program provides state cash grants to families of children with certified disabilities. The goal is to prevent or delay out-of-home placement of children with disabilities and promote family health and social well-being by providing access to family-centered services and supports.

Medical Assistance (Medicaid)

TEFRA – Medical Assistance-TEFRA (MA-TEFRA) is for children with disabilities whose parents have too much income to qualify for other Minnesota Health Care Programs or who qualify but the cost would be too high.
