Policy Summary

Council Action No. 2020A-0851 approves the Minneapolis Health Department's request to accept a $88,017 grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services to facilitate emergency food distribution services and authorizes an agreement with the State. Accompanying documentation indicates that city staff completed a racial equity impact analysis and found that 300-600 Latinx and BIPOC will be served by this grant in an “area over-burdened with poverty, unemployment, food insecurity and environmental justice challenges.” Resolution No. 2020R-336 formally appropriates the grant funds to the Health Department.
