Support Minnesota Families in Poverty.30 Years is Too Long!
We call on Governor Dayton and the Minnesota legislature to increase the MFIP (welfare for families with young children) grants in Minnesota...now.
MN welfare grants for families in poverty have not been increased for 27 years. In 1986 the cash grant for a family of two was $437 a month. Today the grant is still only $437 a month. Meanwhile, the cost of living has more than doubled.
The money is there -- last year only 28% of the federal dollars given to Minnesota for welfare went directly to poor MN families in cash grants. Now is the time to support poor families (and 70,000 children) and raise the grants!"
