This past July, the Department of Human Services provided Direct Support Workers in the PCA choice, CSG and CDCS programs with the opportunity to complete trainings and receive a one-time $500 stipend. 5,000 stipends were made available, and there are still close to 4,000 remaining.
To sign up for the trainings, please visit https://www.minnesotadswtraining.com to complete the log in process and view the training requirements. Once you complete the trainings, you will receive confirmation with instructions on how to receive your check.
Additionally, if your client is in the PCA choice or CSG program, and is assessed as needing 12 or more hours a day, you can complete the required trainings and receive an enhanced rate. To check to see if you are eligible, please contact Accra at 952-935-3515.
