Consumer Support Grant (CSG)
About this Program
The Consumer Support Grant program is a state-funded alternative to Medicaid home care services of a home health aide. The CSG Program provides clients with greater flexibility and freedom of choice in service selection, staff wages, service delivery specifications and employment of service providers. Parents, spouses, family members, trusted neighbors or friends can be paid for service.
MRCI is proud to have been awarded the contract from MN DHS to provide Financial Management Services for CSG participants statewide. Anyone using CSG must have a Financial Management Services Provider, like MRCI.
